The attacks affected 150 countries and infected at least 200,000 computers worldwide, despite global cyber security firms warning last month that they were expected.

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Fylde and Wyre CCG are still experiencing IT problems. "We need the tech sector, customers and governments to work together to protect against cybersecurity attacks".

The WannaCry or WannaCrypt ransomware attack deployed a Windows exploit that the National Security Agency had used for its own purposes until it was leaked in April by the hacking group Shadow Brokers.

Cyber security experts have warned that the ransomware virus, which affected one in five NHS trusts, could be reactivated by computers and devices that have not yet been switched on. "Which we will", she said.

"The way these attacks work means that compromises of machines and networks that have already occurred may not yet have been detected, and that existing infections from the malware can spread within networks", Britain's National Cyber Security Center said Sunday.

Eleven health boards as well as NHS National Services and the Scottish Ambulance Service were affected in the unprecedented cyber attack which hit scores of countries on Friday.

Security firms are encouraging companies and users to make sure they install the official patch from Microsoft.
