Hackers have launched a fresh ransomware attack on Europe just a month after the ‘WannaCry’ virus locked computers across the continent.

The Ukranian government appears to have been badly affected, alongside Russia’s Rosneft oil company and Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk.

‘We are talking about a cyberattack,’ said Anders Rosendahl, a spokesman for the Copenhagen-based group said.

‘It has affected all branches of our business, at home and abroad.’

Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Pavlo Rozenko on Tuesday posted a picture of a darkened computer screen to Twitter, saying that the computer system at the government’s headquarters has been shut down.

There’s very little information about who might be behind the disruption, but technology experts who examined screenshots circulating on social media said it bears the hallmarks of ransomware.

Such viruses hold data to ransom, scrambling it until a payment is made, usually requesting virtual currency Bitcoin because it is anonymous and cannot be traced.

The world is still recovering from a previous outbreak of ransomware, called WannaCry or WannaCrypt, which spread rapidly using digital break-in tools originally created by the U.S. National Security Agency and recently leaked to the web.
