ORLANDO, Fla. -- Companies are still still hobbled from a fearsome cyberattack that first targeted hospitals last month throughout Ukraine and slowly spread across the globe, according to the AP.

The Heritage Valley Health System couldn’t offer lab and diagnostic imaging services at 14 community and neighborhood offices in western Pennsylvania. DLA Piper, a London-based law firm with offices in 40 countries, said on its website that email systems were down; a receptionist said email hadn’t been restored by the close of business day.

Dave Kennedy, a former Marine cyberwarrior who is now CEO of the security company TrustedSec, said one U.S. company he is helping is rebuilding its entire network of more than 5,000 computers, according to the Associated Press, saying in part, “It hit everything, their backups, servers, their workstations, everything. Everything was just nuked and wiped. Some of these companies are actually using pieces of paper to write down credit card numbers. It’s crazy.”
