"Indeed, all the "experts" using this as an excuse to bash the NHS are looking pretty silly right now"

I don't think I am. I asked:

"As we discovered last time the NHS had a ransomware attack - which must have been all of a few months ago - everyone has full permission on everything at an SMB level.

If this turns out to be spread via SMB or anything below layer then someone needs to explain how the network was configured so badly."

It still seems a perfectly reasonable question.
