Worldwide Cyberattack Could Bring Additional Fallout Monday
SHANGHAI-"Hundreds of thousands" of Chinese computers at almost 30,000 institutions including government agencies have been hit by the global ransomware attack, a leading Chinese security-software provider has said, though the Asian impact has otherwise been relatively muted.
It follows the "ransomware" cyber-attack which left NHS trusts across the United Kingdom without access to IT facilities and patients records.
GP practices and other NHS services around England that were forced to close for several days following the 'cyber attack' on the NHS computer system have now reopened.
This left GP practices unable to access any patient data - prompting pleas for patients to attend surgery only if their need is urgent.
A spokesman said: "Our understanding is that if that had been acted on it would have prevented [the malware attack]".
The Welsh Government said precautionary measures had been taken "to ensure the integrity of the system and we continue to monitor the situation closely".

Its national incident director, Dr Anne Rainsberry, said: 'The message to patients is clear: the NHS is open for business.
"As a result of the attack, we will be reviewing and further strengthening our system protection arrangements", the spokesperson said.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said that a million people were treated on Monday, with GP surgeries working hard to ensure as few patients as possible are affected.
"In addition to protective real-time monitoring of national NHS IT services and systems, which were unaffected by this issue, we are supporting NHS organisations by undertaking cyber security testing and providing bespoke advice and action points".
Europe bore the brunt of the initial attack which hit more than 75,000 victims over the weekend including the UK National Health Service (NHS), the Russian Government, the Spanish telecommunications sector, German Railways and US-based FedEx Corp.
