Another big ransom ware attack ripples across the world

Another big ransom ware attack ripples across the worldUpdated on : 28-06-2017 08:56 AM
Another massive ransom ware outbreak has been reported that's fast spreading across the world and hitting a significant number of critical infrastructure providers.

The virus, the source of which is not yet known, has hit computer servers across Europe and in India. It freezes the user's computer until a ransom in untraceable Bitcoin is paid.

Ukrainian firms, including the state power company and Kiev's main airport, were among the first to report issues.

The US Department of Homeland Security advised victims not to pay the ransom, saying there was no guarantee that access to files would be restored.

The international police organisation Interpol has said it was "closely monitoring" the situation and liaising with its member countries.

The attacks come two months after another global ransomware assault, known as Wannacry, which caused major problems for the UK's National Health Service.
