網絡攻擊導致國家醫療服務系統的重大計算機故障

國家犯罪署表示,它知道這一事件,並正在努力更好地了解它。

據證實,英國各地的一些國家醫療服務系統的重大故障是由網絡攻擊造成的。

為NHS 111提供數字服務的公司Advanced表示,攻擊發生在北京時間周四7:00。

攻擊影響了NHS 111電話服務,並使病人無法被轉診到非工作時間的全科醫生。

國家犯罪署表示,它 "意識到了一起網絡事件",並正在與Advanced合作。

"高級公司的老闆西蒙-肖特說:"昨天發現了一個安全問題,導致了服務的損失。

"我們可以確認,該事件與網絡攻擊有關,作為預防措施,我們立即隔離了我們所有的健康和護理環境。

"我們的事件響應小組的早期干預將這個問題控制在少數服務器上,占我們健康和護理基礎設施的2%"。

周五,威爾士救護車服務報告說,故障是 "重大 "和 "持續 "的。

"一個計算機系統發生了重大故障,該系統用於將病人從威爾士國家醫療服務系統111號轉到非工作時間的全科醫生供應商。

"正在進行的故障是重大的,而且影響深遠,對英國四個國家中的每一個國家都有影響"。


The National Crime Agency said it was aware of the incident and is working to better understand it

A major outage of some NHS services across the UK was caused by a cyber-attack, it has been confirmed.

Advanced, a firm that provides digital services for NHS 111, said the attack occurred at 07:00 BST on Thursday.

The attack impacted the NHS 111 phone service, and prevented patients being referred to out-of-hours GPs.

The National Crime Agency said it was "aware of a cyber incident" and is working with Advanced.

"A security issue was identified yesterday, which resulted in loss of service," said Advanced boss Simon Short.

"We can confirm that the incident is related to a cyber-attack and as a precaution, we immediately isolated all our health and care environments.

"Early intervention from our Incident Response Team contained this issue to a small number of servers representing 2% of our Health & Care infrastructure."

On Friday the Welsh Ambulance Service reported the outage was "significant" and "ongoing".

"There is a major outage of a computer system that is used to refer patients from NHS 111 Wales to out-of-hours GP providers.

"The ongoing outage is significant and has been far reaching, impacting each of the four nations in the UK."
