WannaCrypt NHS victim Lanarkshire infected by malware again

My hospital has two Philips CT scanners running XP. We've got in touch with Philips and they're forbidding us from applying any windows update (Even the WannaCry patch).

They need to be networked because you need to get the images to other systems. But if we patch they loose their warrenty and CE marking since we're acting against the manufacturer. So... that sucks.
