Global Ransomware Attack Spawned By NSA





Hospitals in the UK, power grid in Spain and package delivery by FedEx — all infected & affected by ransomware that has spread to 74 countries in the first 10 hours today. The ransomware, which holds computers hostage until ransom is paid (and escalates the ransom with delay), was based on malware developed by the NSA. David Knight looks at the negligence of computer companies who have not fixed the vulnerabilities in their systems even after they were warned by WikiLeaks and cybersecurity experts. It will will likely be the whistleblowers who are blamed and attacked by the government for the problems the government & its crony contractors created and failed to fix.
