Ransomware virus hits Maha Police dept, real damage to be known today

| | New Delhi

The country’s cyber security agency has alerted Internet users against damaging activities of a strong and globally active ransomware virus — Wannacry — that critically infects work stations and locks them remotely. On Sunday evening, the Maharashtra Police department said it was partially hit by the ransomware.

The “unprecedented” ransomware cyberattack has hit as many as 2,00,000 victims in over 150 countries.  “At the moment, we are in the face of an escalating threat. The numbers are going up, I am worried about how the numbers will continue to grow when people go to work and turn (on) their machines on Monday morning,” Europol Director Rob Wainwright said.
