'Petya' ransomware attack strikes companies across Europe

Jon Henley European affairs correspondent Tuesday 27 June 2017 10.55 EDT

A major cyber-attack has struck large companies across Europe, with Ukraine’s government, banks, state electricity grid, telephone companies and even metro particularly badly affected.

The attack has caused serious disruption at companies including advertising multinational WPP, France’s Saint-Gobain, Russian steel, mining and oil firms Evraz and Rosneft, and the Danish shipping giant AP Moller-Maersk.

Note references to an Extra DAT in the Announcement refer only to Enterprise software.  Consumer software will receive it via the normal update process.

As a consumer, using McAfee Livesafe, I have been sent an email about it that made absolutely no sense whatsoever.  I thought it was spam!  Now I find it is in my McAfee secure inbox too, so it isn't spam - just gobbledegook aimed at an entirely different audience.

Broken link Selvan, that one only opens support, and TS102703 doesn't find it either.
