"NHS-CIO: Remove all external access to the HSE's Network to protect the integrity of clinical IT"

* For how long? Just "over the weekend"... WTF??? Isn't anyone getting the message that the net is toxic... We need to start over with new net security models. What we have isn't working. Its turning semi-apocalyptic...

* Governments in particular need to stop connecting internal systems to the net in the hope of saving pennies but actually becoming net facing 'marks'... Everyone else needs to seriously consider unplugging too, especially organizations / scada industry etc etc...

* The Data Wars are already lost to scammers, cybercrims, hackers... But nothing will change while aging politicians pretend to run the show... And since no one even bothered to buy the Shadow Brokers/NSA tools to keep them off the market, expect nothing but more chaos!
