LG hit by WannaCry malware, systems shut down for two days
WannaCry is causing havoc yet again, with LG its latest victim.
The WannaCry malware dominated headlines earlier this summer, as it infected more than 300,000 Windows systems and disabled numerous networks.
It had the potential to wreak havoc and expose the data of thousands of private citizens and organisations, but was thwarted almost accidentally last May by Devon infosec expert Marcus Hutchins.
At the time, Hutchins warned that the story of WannaCry was not close to an end. “This is not over. The attackers will realise how we stopped it, they’ll change the code and then they’ll start again. Enable Windows Update, update and then reboot.”
