European policing and security agencies said the fallout from a ransomware attack that has already crippled more than 200,000 computers around the world could deepen as people return for another work week. That was "unheard of six months ago", Levy said.

Indeed, such is the extent of the WannaCrypt attack that Microsoft took the unprecedented step of issuing patches for unsupported operating systems including Windows XP, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2003, which now only usually receive patches if the organisation using them are receiving special custom support.

Universities and other educational institutions in China were among the hardest hit, possibly because schools tend to have old computers and be slow to update operating systems and security, said Fang Xingdong, founder of ChinaLabs, an internet strategy think tank.

Deutsche Bahn: The German railway company told CNNMoney that due to the attack "passenger information displays in some stations were inoperative" as were "some ticket machines".

Hitachi: The Japanese electronics firm said Monday that its computer systems have been experiencing problems since the weekend, including not being able to send and receive emails or open attached files. Hitachi said it believed the difficulties are linked to the global cyberattack but they haven't so far harmed its business operations.

No patient data has been lost as a result of this attack.

Australians have been urged to update their virus software immediately. Asia reported thousands of new cases but no large-scale breakdowns as workers started the week by booting up their computers. Radio Slovenia said Saturday the Revoz factory in the southeastern town of Novo Mesto stopped working on Friday evening to stop the malware from spreading.

British defence minister Michael Fallon told the BBC the government under prime minister Theresa May was spending around 50 million pounds on improving the computer systems in the NHS after warning the service that it needed to reduce its exposure to "the weakest system, the Windows XP". He said the situation was under control.

In the United Kingdom, the National Health Service has been forced to cancel operations today within its hospitals after computers used to share patients' test results and scans with doctors remain frozen.

The NHS, which was showcased in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games, employs more than 1.5 million people, making it the world's fifth biggest employer after the USA and Chinese militaries, Walmart and McDonald's.

A statement by the York NHS trust said appointments today have been cancelled for X-ray bone scans at Scarborough hospital, as well as all outpatient appointments at Selby Hospital except for blood-taking and musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

He cited freedom of information requests which showed that 79 English Trusts, more than 33%, had suffered ransomware attacks since June 2015 and stated "it is abundantly clear that our NHS should have been better prepared for ransomware attacks".

Home Secretary Amber Rudd will chair a meeting of the Government's emergency COBRA committee later.

Tim Stevens, a lecturer in global security at King's College London, warned that the incident should be a wakeup call to both the public and private sectors to incorporate security into computer systems from the ground up, rather than as an afterthought.
