- Summary: ****WARNING: CONTAINS FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY*** SCREEN SHOW MAP OF AFFECTED AREAS IN THE WORLD (SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Indonesia) INDONESIA INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION MINISTER, RUDIANTARA SAYING: "From what I know is that this malware did not affect the existing data, which results in a similar approach as NHS, UK, where they are doing things manually now, thus taking a little bit more time. For example, usually the registration process is computerised automatically as it is connected to a server and the doctor and other medical staff. Now everything has to be done manually, that is the consequence from the attack."

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.
