A new type of warfare? What lays behind these attacks? Already there have been stories about how hackers have been distorting the democratic process. This attack seems to go further. For example, the British NHS was crippled with a result that operations had to be cancelled, people were left waiting for treatment and chaos reigned supreme.
The Ransomware attack is being described as 'like having a Tomahawk missile stolen', according to Microsoft boss Brad Smith. He says that the ‘WannaCry’ virus attack that locked up to 200,000 computers in 150 countries is a ‘wake-up call’ amid fears that more will be hit during the coming week.
Malicious software believed to have been stolen from the US National Security Agency is believed to have been responsible (it begs the question what the NSA were doing with this in the first place) was used to cause havoc across the world.
Have you been affected? What are your thoughts on this new form of terrorism? What do the hackers expect to gain from these attacks?
