NHS virus


The long story short. Widely used in past exploit by NSA has been stolen and used as a back door to redistribute virus collecting money. This exploit has been used by NSA to do a full files backup w/o permission from the owner AKA ‘spy access’. Therefore, Microsoft patched this exploit 2 months ago for all supported version of the Windows (outdated software OSes like Windows XP and Windows server 2003 stays without patches at that time). Unfortunately, UK government who spent £5.5m to extend support for Windows XP (mainly used by NHS) has finished 8 April last year.
