UK COUN­CILS AT­TACKED BY MAL­WARE

Computer Active (UK) - - News -

Coun­cils across the UK are fac­ing an in­creased threat from cy­ber-at­tacks, ac­cord­ing to new re­search from an­tivirus com­pany Mal­ware­bytes. Over 75 per cent of the 38 lo­cal author­i­ties who took part in the sur­vey said they had been at­tacked in the past 12 months, with around half re­veal­ing they’d been tar­geted by ran­somware. A third of se­nior coun­cil of­fi­cials said they had lit­tle con­fi­dence in the abil­ity of their cur­rent sys­tems to iden­tify and re­move mal­ware.
