A massive ransomware campaign appears to have infected a number of organisations around the world. Computers in thousands of locations have apparently been locked by a program that demands $300 (£230) in Bitcoin. There have been reports of infections in more than 70 countries, including the UK, US, China, Russia, Spain, Italy and Taiwan. Many security researchers are linking the incidents together.
Statement from Dr Anne Rainsberry, NHS Incident Director “We’d like to reassure patients that if they need the NHS and it’s an emergency that they should visit A&E or access emergency services in the same way as they normally would and staff will ensure they get the care they need. NHS Digital is investigating the incident and across the NHS we have tried and tested contingency plans to ensure we are able to keep the NHS open for business.”

XP is still widely used in industrial applications, mostly the ones that were homebrew in-house and work/do the job reliable.
Btw, correct me if it was not 100% 64bit compatible but there was, and I used it: Windows XP x64.
