The Russian health ministry's IT network has been hit by cyberattacks, but managed to repel them, an aide to the minister said Saturday.

Axar.az reports citing to Sputnik Russia’s Health Ministry has repelled the cyberattack on its IT network that affected thousands of computers globally.

"I inform you that @MINZDRAV_RF promptly repelled attacks as soon as they began and patched up all vulnerabilities," Nikita Odintsov tweeted.

Russia was hit the most by the massive cyberattack that used a malicious program called WannaCrypt to lock computers and restore access for a payment. Russia’s Interior Ministry said a thousand of its computers were infected but sensitive data was not compromised.
Computers in more than 70 other countries have also been affected. In the United Kingdom, the National Health Service (NHS) lost access to patient records in England and Scotland and asked the public to avoid coming to hospitals without emergency.
