May 13, 2017: Cyber attack hits dozens of countries worldwide, forcing Britain's public health system to send patients away. Transmitted via email, the malicious software locked British hospitals out of their computer systems and demanded ransom before users could be let back in — with a threat that data would be destroyed if the demands were not met.

Russia was the worst-hit, followed by Ukraine, India and Taiwan.
Reportedly, the hackers have used a previously leaked hacking tool from the National Security Agency (NSA), which had been developed as part of its arsenal of cyber weapons.
