Sorry to hear about the malware spreading across the U.K. Health system. I hope it doesn't affect your dialysis centers and your overall health.

Should be fixed soon.  Someone discovered the "kill switch" to stop the malware.

That's good. Doesn't effect people already encrypted. I'm wondering if some one will be able to get rid of the encryption as well. They have solutions to other encryption attacks.

Some hospitals have paid the ransom money.  That has started this kidnapping of health care computers.  At least that is my understanding.
