Cyber attack sweeps globe

Reuters: Cyber attack sweeps globe, researchers see ‘WannaCry’ link

A major global cyber attack disrupted computers at Russia's biggest oil company, Ukrainian banks and multinational firms with a virus similar to the ransomware that infected more than 300,000 computers last month.

The rapidly spreading cyber extortion campaign, which began on Tuesday, underscored growing concerns that businesses have failed to secure their networks from increasingly aggressive hackers, who have shown they are capable of shutting down critical infrastructure and crippling corporate and government networks.

A familiar actor may be behind the massive cyberattack that swept Europe

A colossal cyberattack on Tuesday has been wreaking havoc on countries and corporations across the globe, and some cybersecurity experts are zeroing in on a familiar name as the possible culprit…

Though it's too soon to be certain, experts say it seems as though a confluence of factors may be pointing to Russian state involvement in carrying out the attack…

Russia may be behind the Petya cyberattack - Business Insider

We were fortunate here – some ATM’s down for the day and certain pay channels not working.

Looks like the Bueman may be in the clear, sorry.

Everything you need to know about the massive Petya cyberattack which started from Ukraine

On 27-28 June, an attack of malware infected computers worldwide, with the lion’s share of infections falling on Ukraine. Computers in the Ukrainian government, energy companies, banks, and media companies were infected, leading to data loss on many workstations and servers running Windows operating systems across the country. Many websites went offline, including the Government Portal. Trade on Ukraine’s three major stock markets, Perspektiva, PFTS, and Ukrainian exchange, was temporarily suspended. The Chornobyl nuclear power plant’s radiation monitoring system was also affected by the cyber attack.

The virus was initially dubbed Petya by malware experts due to its similarity to a ransomware used in attack in 2016. However, it was quickly discovered that the virus only masquerades as Petya while being more malicious: not only does it not unblock a user’s files after the “ransom” is paid, it wipes the hard disk of the computer altogether. This led security experts to consider another name for the virus: NotPetya, or ExPetr…

Curious that the header says that the virus originated in Ukraine which was the most heavily attacked. Also that it may have originated in the Russian occupied Donbas, I very much doubt that there is anyone smart enough there to have carried this out.
