Some experts said the threat had receded for now, in part because a British-based researcher, who declined to give his name, registered a domain that he noticed the malware was trying to connect to, and so limited the worm's spread.

Which Scottish NHS organisations were affected by the ransomware attack? . Some 97% of NHS trusts are now "working as normal" and there is nothing to indicate that patient data was affected, the BBC reports. We are working closely with them and are being guided by their expert knowledge in this field.
According to cyber analysis, the Wanna Decryptor malware used in the attack on the NHS and Telefonica "exploits a similar vulnerability" to an NSA-developed tool known as EXTERNALBLUE, researcher Marco Cova said.
