Western Health targeted by WannaCry ransomware

Melbourne's Western Health has confirmed it was a target of the WannaCry ransomware worm earlier this year, although it appears not to have been successful.

Western Health runs the 600-bed Sunshine Hospital in St Albans as well as the 290-bed Footscray Hospital and the smaller Williamstown Hospital, and will manage the new $200 million Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital when it opens at the end of the year.
