    Chinese computers at nearly 30,000 institutions ranging from government offices to universities, ATMs and hospitals had been “infected” by WannaCry.
    According to data from Kaspersky, Windows 7 accounted for more than 98% of WannaCry infections:https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/19/1...tim-statistics

    ‘Britain could launch air strikes in response to cyber attacks, the Defence Secretary warned today.

    Sir Michael Fallon sent out a tough message to hackers in the wake of a ‘sustained and determined’ assault on the parliamentary network.

    He said the UK had the ability to respond to online attacks ‘from any domain – air, land, sea or cyber’.

    Sir Michael also highlighted the success of the UK’s ability to carry out cyber attacks against ISIS in Iraq and Syria and offered similar British support to future Nato operations.’

    All the money that exists cannot buy Earth, and the evidence is that we destroy our habitat as a result, thinking that we can just seize and pillage as we see fit. If crowds endorse the pursuit of wealth at their own level, they cannot prevent multinationals from doing exactly the same. The “dystopian endless growth paradigm” is going to end with a bang but will open the door to a premise endorsing that Earth is the only wealth we truly have while journeying through life.

    I think this is probably enough to tell us what is going on. The UK claims they can blow up any building in any country because they determined a cyber attack came from there?

    So now another arrow in the quiver in the war on freedom. And the flip side to this is, no kill switch, no ransom, maximum destruction. If someone was really going to target something like UK parliament, it's all in or nothing.
