London’s financial Center Bombarded With Ransomware
People who work in the City of London, the UK capital’s financial centre, are being targeted by a specific kind of computer attack that holds digital files to ransom. Cybersecurity company Malwarebytes says that the City of London is a hotbed for ransomware attacks compared to the rest of Europe. The company monitored cybersecurity threats for just over a year to see which parts of Europe had the most attacks. It found that the City of London suffered 10,500 ransomware attacks, which is 670% more than the second-biggest target, Manchester.
