Two major Indonesian hospitals were struck by the "ransomware" cyber attack and work is underway to resolve the problems caused by it, Information and Communication Minister Rudiantara told reporters on Sunday (May 14).
Jakarta's Dharmais Hospital is manually re-installing its system he said. Officials said earlier that operational delays were expected at the hospital.
The attack, which leverages hacking tools believed to have been developed by the U.S. National Security Agency, has infected tens of thousands of computers in nearly 100 countries.
