Ukraine’s national bank, state power company and largest airport are among the targets of a huge cyber attack on government infrastructure.

Rozenko Pavlo, the deputy Prime Minister, said he and other members of the Ukrainian government were unable to access their computers.

Analysts said the virus, named Petrwrap or Petya, appeared to work similarly to the WannaCry ransomware that infected more than 230,000 computers in 150 countries last month.
Ukrainian state-run aircraft manufacturerAntonov was among the companies hit, along with power distributor Ukrenergo, which said the attack did not affect power supplies.

It's a good thing it's just using a untrusted digital signature with the issuer set to Microsoft, Saying that i think it will come a time when a malware coder managed to steal a code signing certificate from a legitimate software developer and sign there malware with that.

Did businesses not learn from the WannaCry fiasco a month or so ago??? That made Global news and it should have been a massive wake up call!
Do you realize how many billions of people pay no attention to the news - if WannaCry was reported at all where they live ?

Even if they did hear about it, it is very likely that they had absolutely no idea what the report meant.

IT security proper is not a part of the vast majority of typical people's lives.
