NSC, NC4 Monitoring Developments Of NotPetya Ransomware

A screen displays the website of the global law firm DLA Piper showing a message about a malware attack advising readers that their computer systems have been taken down as a precautionary measure due to what they describe as a serious global cyber incident, as seen from Launceston, Tasmania, 28 June 2017. Kaspersky Lab reported that the malware, despite resembling 'Petya' malware that affected computers last year, is believed to be a new type of ransomware which it labelled as 'NotPetya'. The ransomware has reportedly affected mostly Ukraine, Russia and Poland with around 2,000 cases reported in the countries. US pharmaceutical giant Merck, the world's second largest such firm, and Australia's Cadbury chocolate factory were reportedly affected, among other global companies. Pic: EPA
