Ukraine Power Station Hit by Cyber Attack

Ukrainian state power distributor Ukrenergo was hit by another cyber attack on Thursday which used a computer virus different from one that hit Ukraine on Tuesday, said Ukrenergo’s acting head. The second attack did not affect Ukraine’s power network, Vsevolod Kovalchuk told a news briefing on Friday, Reuters reported. “The virus was of a slightly different nature, but similar to WannaCry,” he said. “The effect from it was insignificant, as some computers remained offline.” A computer virus spread from Ukraine across the world earlier this week, paralyzed thousands of machines and shut down ports, factories and offices as it spread to an estimated 60 countries.
