UK defence secretary insists nuclear subs safe despite concerns over WannaCry vulnerability

UK defence secretary insists nuclear subs safe despite concerns over WannaCry vulnerability | 14 May 2017 | British Defence Secretary Michael Fallon insists he has “complete confidence” in the safety of Britain's nuclear submarines, but refused to deny that they run on the Windows XP operating system that has been exploited in a major global cyberattack. Since Britain's National Health Service (NHS) was walloped by the WannaCry ransomware, fears have arisen that the country's military could also be susceptible because of its outdated computer systems. Friday's attack affected 48 NHS trusts, forcing doctors unable to access patient files to cancel operations, and ambulances to divert to hospitals where systems were not down.
