Ransomware attacks spread 'world wide'

A global spate of ransomware cyber attacks

hit companies and government organizations in at least seven countries on Friday evening.

The attacks, which see a virus encrypt a computers files and demand payment  in bitcoin to de-code them, began with an assault on NHS hospitals across Britain.

Russia, Ukraine, and Taiwan were the worst hit by the attacks by malware called WannaCry or WannaCry 2, Jakub Kroustek, a malware researcher at AVG Avast, said.
