You do wonder how low these hackers will stoop. Can't they hack fat cat investment banks if they must??? (Though I suspect that does harm to innocent people as well - just not as many as the NHS!)

It's not aimed at NHS specifically , just all Microsoft computers that aren't kept up to date with security patches. The older the software the more vulnerable it is.

Hope all you Microsoft users run Microsoft updates regularly. Mine is set to automatically run .
I found the futurelearn cybersecurity courses every good in this respect

Well, if people end up dying 'not specifically' because of the hackers, I hope they suffer the same themselves.

But thanks for the heads up re MS security!
