Protection from Ransomeware – Healthcare Records on the Blockchain

Blockchain technology is being adopted by many countries and in particular, there is a move towards having medical records on the blockchain.


Recently there was Ransomeware attack on over 100 countries on the 12 May 2017 and one of the countries most affected was the UK and the NHS.  As reported by the BBC – NHS bosses and the government are facing questions over why hospitals had been left vulnerable to the global cyber attack that crippled services on Friday.


The health service faced a weekend of chaos after hackers demanding a ransom infiltrated the health service’s antiquated computer system. Operations and appointments were cancelled and ambulances diverted as up to 40 hospital trusts became infected by a “ransomware” attack demanding payment to regain access to vital medical records.Doctors warned that the infiltration – the largest cyber attack in NHS history – could cost lives.”  



Britain’s National Health Service was hit hard because the cash-strapped hospital system did not upgrade to the most recent versions of the Windows operating system — an outdated system Microsoft long ago stopped supporting – CNBC reports.
