An anonymous 22-year-old surf fan and self-taught computer expert has been credited with halting the virus that has infected more than 1.3m computer systems, rendered vulnerable to infection by the WannaCry attack that swept across the world on Friday.
So far 200,000 computers across 150 countries are known to have been infected in the first wave of the cyber-attack, paralysing hospitals, disrupting transport networks and immobilising businesses.BM
