A global cyber attack has been underway since Friday, affecting more than 200,000 organisations in 150 countries. In the UK, the major assault hit 47 NHS trusts, leading to operations being cancelled and patients turned away from A&E.

The "WannaCry" ransomware appears to have used a flaw in Microsoft's software, discovered by the National Security Agency and leaked by hackers, to spread rapidly across networks locking away files. 

A security expert managed to stop the attack by triggering a "kill switch" on Saturday but it has continued to wreak havoc. 

Ransomware, which demands payment after launching a cyber attack, has become a rising trend among hackers looking for a quick payout.
