Disruption Continues! Ransomware Attack

The world’s biggest ransomware attack steamrolled off in Europe, thanks to a pushback by cyber security officials after causing havoc in 150 countries, as Microsoft urged governments to heed the “wake-up call”. The cross-border police agency Europol said the situation was “stable”, easing fears that attacks that struck computers in British hospital wards, European car factories and Russian banks would spread further at the start of the working week.

“The number of victims appears not to have gone up and so far the condition seems stable in Europe, which is a success. “It seems that a lot of internet security guys over the weekend did their homework and ran the security software updates,”.
