Two days ago, Nancy and I hugged each other in my favorite restaurant. She and her husband had not eaten there in twenty years. They heard me talking to a woman with a Rose in her name. Nancy Hamren, said hello, and we talked about old friends. She is going to San Francisco for a Hippie Reunion. Nancy encouraged me to write the history of the Hippies, which became the Gideon Computer, which is about the Last Hippie of the future who dismantles a malevolent computer that is taking over the world. We just experienced a massive cyber attack.
London (CNN)British Prime Minister Theresa May says a cyberattack initially believed to be targeting only hospitals in the UK has now gone beyond, involving potentially dozens of countries. “We are aware that a number of NHS (National Health Service) organizations have reported they have suffered from a ransomware attack,” May said, while speaking on the campaign trail in the UK. “This is not targeted at the NHS. It is an international attack. A number of countries and organizations have been affected.” A report from a security firm indicates more than 45,000 malicious computer attacks in 74 countries in the past 10 hours. CNN has not independently confirmed that number The problem appeared to begin Friday morning when hospitals in the UK were crippled by a large-scale cyberattack, which forced operations to be canceled and ambulances to be diverted.
