UK hospital meltdown after ransomware worm uses NSA vuln to raid IT

Gavin Park Weir

Having been a supplier to the NHS in the past. The reason none of us greedy bastard, no good, only out for ourselves, shoody outfits provide the right high quality solution is this:

NHS: Can I have a good thing to update / fix / provide (delete as needed) this service

Supplier: We would recommend X which costs £Y

NHS: We can't afford Y because we are not able to negotiate the budget we need to fix update / fix / provide (delete as needed). What can you for £Z?

Supplier: How about this 2003 PC running XP?
