Berhampur,(17/05/2017):As the world struggles to tame the WannaCry ransomware which has crippled computers across the globe, the virus has affected the information management system of Berhampur city hospital in Odisha’s Ganjam district.

According to reports, the e-medicine services of the hospital have been affected due to the virus attack.

This apart, important data in the hospital’s e-mail were also hacked, sources said.

On the other hand, Information and Technology Minister Chandra Sarathi Behera informed that a technical team has been sent to the hospital to fix the problem.

Notably, ransomware is malicious software that locks a connected device, such as a computer, tablet or smart phone and then demands a ransom to unlock it.

WannaCry– the ransomware malware– has the ability to spread itself within corporate networks, without user interaction, by exploiting a known vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. 

Computers which do not have the latest Windows security updates are at the risk of infection.
