UK: London Hospitals Still Battling Computer Virus

Nick Heath writes on

Three London hospitals are trying to flush a virus out of computer systems 11 days after it first struck.

Engineers at Barts and The London NHS Trust are still trying to restore full network access for all trust staff and to clean the virus from remaining PCs.

The W32/Mytob.gen@mm virus was detected on a network at the trust - which covers St Bartholomew's in the City, The Royal London in Whitechapel and The London Chest in Bethnal Green - on Monday 17 November.

The trust has launched an investigation into how the infection was introduced and then spread throughout the network.
