|Ransomware Affected Organizations|
The ransomware campaign was unprecedented in scale according to Europol. The attack affected many National Health Service hospitals in England and Scotland, and up to 70,000 devices — including computers, MRI scanners, blood-storage refrigerators and theatre equipment — may have been affected. On 12 May, some NHS services had to turn away non-critical emergencies, and some ambulances were diverted.In 2016, thousands of computers in 42 separate NHS trusts in England were reported to be still running Windows XP.NHS hospitals in Wales and Northern Ireland were unaffected by the attack.
Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK in Tyne and Wear, one of Europe's most productive car manufacturing plants, halted production after the ransomware infected some of their systems. Renault also stopped production at several sites in an attempt to stop the spread of the ransomware.
According to experts the attack's impact could have been much worse if no kill-switch was built in by the malware's creators.
Cybersecurity expert Ori Eisen said that the attack appears to be "low-level" stuff, given the ransom demands of $300 and states that the same thing could be done to crucial infrastructure, like nuclear power plants, dams or railway systems.
