Anti-Trump Protest? Massive Ransomware Attack Hits 99 Countries Worldwide

Donald Trump and muh Russia will get the blame for today’s cyberattacks using NSA stolen malware. Example:

Although I haven’t been able to confirm it, there are claims that the cyber attack that struck on Friday is a leftist anti-Trump protest as well as a blackmail scheme.

A large scale ransomware attack using tools stolen from the US National Security Agency has struck 99 countries this morning.
The huge attack, which spread across the world, has infected computers in the US, Europe and Asia.

Computers in thousands of locations have been locked by the malicious software which demands a payment of $300 in Bitcoin to restore access. The ransom will rise with time and the files will eventually be deleted, the warning reads.

On Friday night, US firm Fedex announced its operations in the US were affected. Russia’s interior and emergencies ministries, as well as the country’s biggest bank, Sberbank, confirmed they had been targeted.

A number of Spanish firms – including telecoms giant Telefonica, power firm Iberdrola and utility provider Gas Natural – were also affected by the the malware attack. Portugal Telecom, delivery company FedEx, a Swedish local authority and Russia’s second largest mobile phone network, Megafon, also announced that they were affected.

People took to Twitter to share photos of affected computers including a local railway ticket machine in Germany and a university computer lab in Italy.

Some reports said Russia had seen more infections than any other single country. Russia’s interior ministry is reported as saying it had “localised the virus” following an “attack on personal computers using Windows operating system”.

In April hackers known as The Shadow Brokers claimed to have stolen the tools from the NSA and released them online.

BLAME THESE GUYS.

Microsoft released a patch for the vulnerability in March, but many machines and older operating systems may not have been updated.

99 countries have reported infections, including the UK, US, China, Russia, Spain, Italy and Taiwan. Cyber-security firm Avast is reported as saying that it had seen 75,000 cases of the ransomware – known as WannaCry and variants of that name – around the world.

The attack wrought havoc with the UK’s National Health Service as dozens of hospital trusts across the country were forced to turn off their computer systems.

Emergency patients in are reportedly being diverted to other areas, with hospitals across England and Scotland affected. Affected NHS trusts said that IT systems had been shut down in order to protect them. That meant that all systems were offline and hospitals were unable to accept incoming calls.

The attack on comes not long after a report was published in the British Medical Journal in which neurologist Dr Krishna Chinthapalli warned that hospitals were at risk of a cyber attack. “We should be prepared: more hospitals will almost certainly be shut down by ransomware this year,” he wrote.

In a statement,Downing street said there was no evidence that patient data had been compromised.

Not much is known about The Shadow Brokers, the group that provided the stolen NSA malware, but it seems reasonable to think that the Jewish Mafia (called the Russian Mafia by politically correct Americans) is involved. What is known is summarized at Wired.

  1. Anti-Trump Protest? Massive Ransomware Attack Hits 99 Countries Worldwide!!
    You can bet your last dime, that the hack originate in the little shitty country !

  2. All hacking is bullhockie, instigated to provoke fear so MORE “SECURITIES” can be implemented (ie, MORE SPYING & CONTROL).

    This event showed (((them))) whose systems are OLD AS DIRT & which need to be brought UP TO DATE to meet NWO/JWO “secure (police state/big brother) levels.”

    I don’t buy the first tweet at top, that it’s for $$ for the wall.

    The NAMES of the spooks are always a tell-tale hoot. SHADOW (yes we know about The Shadow!) BROKERS > (((Merchants))) who want to sell you up-to-date “SECURE” (((All-Seeing-Eye))) Infrastructure.

    Another example: One of the firms who bid to build the wall, their name is “DARK PULSE.” HOW CREEPY IS THAT? The article said they would definitely be using “modern technology” (READ: MICROWAVE RADIATION). Hence, “May I take your PULSE, please?” > > PULSED-MICROWAVE-RADIATION which is what ALL “wireless” is: It is PULSED, much more deadly than “direct” microwaves like in your oven.

    And the DARK part? Maybe referring to the Latinos!?

    Either way, totally creepy name, that just shows what a JOKE-ON-US all this crap is. Read Between the Lines!
