Europol warns of a fresh wave of cyber attack victims as people

For those companies that are not running an up-to-date systems, who

:00:14.:00:27.

have not patched where they should have, they had better make sure that

they have done that before people turn up to work on a Monday morning.

:00:56.:01:07.

Hello and welcome to World News Today.

:01:08.:01:10.

Europe's police agency, Europol, says the global cyber attack has hit

:01:11.:01:12.

more than 200-thousand victims in more than 150 countries.

:01:13.:01:19.

Cyber security experts are now warning of a possible new wave

:01:20.:01:22.

of malware attacks around the world when people return to

:01:23.:01:24.

Europol says Friday's cyber attack was unprecedented in its scale.

:01:25.:01:30.

Europol says it has seen how ransomware has become a major

:01:31.:01:41.

criminal problem in the last two years but they have never seen

:01:42.:01:47.

anything on this scale. Ransomware combined with the worm application

:01:48.:01:50.

which means infected computers passed on to others on its network.

:01:51.:01:55.

The attack was indiscriminate in nature, designed to affect as many

:01:56.:01:59.

people and as many companies as possible on a global basis. The

:02:00.:02:05.

health care sector is vulnerable because health trusts post a lot of

:02:06.:02:10.

sensitive information very often on old IT systems. The criminals know

:02:11.:02:14.

of course that if they can exploit the vulnerability there, the

:02:15.:02:20.

obligations would be serious. There were 200,000 computers infected

:02:21.:02:25.

across 150 countries before a 22-year-old Briton hailed as a hero

:02:26.:02:29.

stopped its ability to spread. Finding a simple kill switch in its

:02:30.:02:35.

cold, something he warned was just a temporary fix. There

:02:36.:02:46.

is a lot of money in this, there is no reason for them to stop. There is

:02:47.:02:51.

not really much effort for them to change the code. Now the director of

:02:52.:02:53.

Europol has confirmed the fears of security experts. We have since seen

:02:54.:02:56.

the cyber criminals react to this and put out a new variant of this

:02:57.:02:58.

which overcomes that temporary fix and I am also concerned about what

:02:59.:03:01.

happens on Monday morning because I think this bug will be sitting in

:03:02.:03:04.

systems over the weekend, that are so far not been used and when people

:03:05.:03:07.

arrive for work on Monday morning and turn on their computer, I think

:03:08.:03:11.

we will see the numbers going up again. Why the high-profile

:03:12.:03:16.

organisations hit have largely recovered, Britain's NHS among them,

:03:17.:03:21.

thanks to back-up systems, some victims, especially many individuals

:03:22.:03:26.

were so prepared. Graduation is just weeks away for students at this

:03:27.:03:30.

campus in China, with no option but to pay up if they want their files

:03:31.:03:36.

are blocked by the hackers. TRANSLATION: The encryption of the

:03:37.:03:39.

ransomware was pretty advanced, individual users would not be over

:03:40.:03:42.

to recover their files. So I think for users, they'll should always

:03:43.:03:47.

back up their files, upgrade their security software and use antivirus

:03:48.:03:53.

tools. And with the new attack imminent, that is the main advice

:03:54.:03:59.

from security experts, download the latest security patches from

:04:00.:04:02.

Microsoft and regularly back-up to devices not connected to the

:04:03.:04:04.

internet. Karl Riley, BBC News. Our security correspondent

:04:05.:04:06.

Gordon Corera says the the latest ransomware is a large-scale

:04:07.:04:08.

and indiscriminate attack. It is a global attack. It is not

:04:09.:04:19.

targeted at a particular country or particular industry sector, it is

:04:20.:04:23.

basically spread everywhere on the internet looking for machines which

:04:24.:04:26.

it can exploit, because they have a certain operating system which has

:04:27.:04:31.

not been upgraded in a way, which allows this worm to operate and do

:04:32.:04:35.

its work by encrypting and making the data on it inaccessible. We have

:04:36.:04:40.

seen this strange distribution of it where in the UK for instance, the

:04:41.:04:45.

national Health Service has been targeted, but in other countries,

:04:46.:04:57.

factories or in Germany, railways were targeted, different companies

:04:58.:04:58.

in different countries because it basically comes down to which

:04:59.:05:01.

companies or organisations or people were using a particular operating

:05:02.:05:03.

system which was vulnerable to this attack. And are we any nearer to

:05:04.:05:07.

knowing who is behind it? Noel is the simple answer. I have spoken to

:05:08.:05:11.

people who say they still have not got a clear sense of who it might

:05:12.:05:15.

be. Typically this is a criminal act rather than the State act.

:05:16.:05:20.

Typically, not always. But because they are seeking to make money, they

:05:21.:05:24.

are asking for a ransom payment in that guides, a certain amount of

:05:25.:05:28.

people have paid, tens of thousands of dollars, but it looks like no one

:05:29.:05:31.

has extracted that or taken the money out, which

:05:32.:05:51.

has been paid. I think authorities will be hoping there might be some

:05:52.:05:54.

way of tracing those that coins, you're not supposed to be able to,

:05:55.:05:57.

but it might be possible. Who this criminal gang was or whether they

:05:58.:05:59.

really understood how widespread the impact would be, whether it is a

:06:00.:06:02.

small gang or established gang, all of that is unclear. A predominantly

:06:03.:06:04.

companies and what do they need to need to do to protect themselves?

:06:05.:06:07.

This is a wake-up call for anyone, to protect yourself you need

:06:08.:06:09.

up-to-date software, you need to be running the software which has been

:06:10.:06:11.

patched meaning the vulnerability has been closed. In this case, the

:06:12.:06:14.

vulnerability was spotted and a patch, a fix for it was sent out and

:06:15.:06:20.

if people had used that, then they would not have been affected. It

:06:21.:06:23.

really is a sign that people need to take cyber security seriously and

:06:24.:06:26.

those people who were able to upgrade and update their machines

:06:27.:06:28.

will not have been affected in the way that others were. Gordon Corera

:06:29.:06:30.

talking to me earlier. Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats

:06:31.:06:32.

have won Germany's most populous state, beating their main

:06:33.:06:34.

Social Democrat rivals, in the last electoral test before

:06:35.:06:36.

the national poll in September. Exit polls for North

:06:37.:06:39.

Rhine-Westphalia show Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats

:06:40.:06:40.

taking a projected share of 34-point-five percent of the vote,

:06:41.:06:42.

with their Free Democrat allies The Social Democrats have

:06:43.:06:45.

30-point-five percent while their governing partners,

:06:46.:06:47.

the Greens, slumped to six percent. Our Berlin correspondent,

:06:48.:06:57.

Damien McGuinness, told me this result would be seen as a pointer

:06:58.:06:59.

to the federal election That is why this regional election

:07:00.:07:13.

matters because on the one hand, it matters in its own right, this is

:07:14.:07:19.

Germany's largest state, 13 point something million voters are both

:07:20.:07:23.

there and they vote primarily on regional issues. They are voting on

:07:24.:07:28.

schools, policing, transport, these are all issues run by the regional

:07:29.:07:33.

governments, but this region is also a bellwether and a signal for the

:07:34.:07:39.

national elections in four months' time and that is partly because this

:07:40.:07:45.

is traditionally a SDP centre-left stronghold and Martin Schulz, Angela

:07:46.:07:50.

Merkel's challenger said and he assumed that they were going to win

:07:51.:07:55.

their and they were going to set up a strong left-wing Coalition

:07:56.:08:01.

government in that area because Martin Shilts felt some enthusiasm

:08:02.:08:04.

from left-wing voters over the past few months and he assumed he would

:08:05.:08:08.

do well here and that this would be a strong signal for September. He

:08:09.:08:12.

has just said about half an hour ago that it is a difficult day for

:08:13.:08:16.

social democracy and a difficult day for him personally because he is

:08:17.:08:20.

well aware now that this is a signal that actually the support around the

:08:21.:08:24.

country may not be as strong as he thinks, because what we have noticed

:08:25.:08:33.

over the past few weeks really is that the initial enthusiasm for him

:08:34.:08:35.

seems to have faded somewhat and that polls are showing that actually

:08:36.:08:37.

Angela Merkel, the current incumbent Chancellor is the most popular and

:08:38.:08:42.

it seems that most voters want her to stay and it is partly because she

:08:43.:08:46.

is seen as a safe pair of hands in insecure times. A difficult day for

:08:47.:08:50.

Martin Schultz, he is not exactly when to throw in the towel, but do

:08:51.:08:54.

you think as far as his leadership challenge goes, you pretty much

:08:55.:08:58.

predicts that it will not happen? That is what some commentators are

:08:59.:09:01.

already saying, they are saying it is the end of the road for him but

:09:02.:09:05.

he said he would keep fighting. It also has to be said that it depends

:09:06.:09:10.

what happens over the next few months, but those Angela Merkel has

:09:11.:09:13.

had a few knocks over the past few years, during the resurgence of the

:09:14.:09:17.

refugee crisis, we have had terror attacks and all those things did not

:09:18.:09:21.

support and there are plenty of voters who are not satisfied with

:09:22.:09:22.

Angela Merkel and want a change, but Angela Merkel and want a change, but

:09:23.:09:33.

I think what we have seen over the past month or so is that people here

:09:34.:09:36.

are saying that Martin Schultz has not really come up with concrete

:09:37.:09:38.

policies and the SDP are finding it difficult really to get that centre

:09:39.:09:40.

ground where Mrs Merkel sitting comfortably indeed when it comes to

:09:41.:09:43.

issues to do with migration when it comes to do with security and

:09:44.:09:47.

terror, Angela Merkel is sitting in the popular centre ground which the

:09:48.:09:52.

SDP is minded hard to occupy. That is the problem and until Martin

:09:53.:09:55.

Schultz can come up with concrete policies to really combat Mrs

:09:56.:09:58.

Merkel, it is hard to see how he will beat in September. Damian

missile test is not the wake to sit down with the President because he

is absolutely not going to do it and I can tell you, he can say all the

conditions he once, until he meets our conditions, we are not sitting

down with them. I spoke earlier to Mark Fitzpatrick,

Executive Director of the International Institute

:13:41.:13:42.

for Stategic studies he explained more about

:13:43.:13:44.

the latest nuclear test. This appears to be the longest range

:13:45.:13:50.

missile that North Korea has successfully tested to date. The

:13:51.:13:56.

range would be about 4500 kilometres, if it was straight and

:13:57.:14:05.

not in the trajectory. That is about 1500 kilometres longer than anything

:14:06.:14:10.

North Korea has tested to date and brings it closer to having an

:14:11.:14:13.

intercontinental ballistic missile range. How close is closer? They

:14:14.:14:21.

still would need to add more oomph to the missile, to reach the United

:14:22.:14:26.

States. They would need a range of 8000. There is considerable more to

:14:27.:14:32.

go, probably at least a couple more years of development, but the pace

:14:33.:14:36.

of North Korea's missile testing has been so rapid and the progress so

:14:37.:14:39.

great in the last couple of years, that it is unclear that they will be

stopped before they can reach the United States. Mark Fitzpatrick

can take from White Hart Lane and keep in our house. Liverpool gave

January as he got there first in a 4-0 win. It means that victory

:18:07.:18:09.

against Middlesbrough on the final day of the season will guarantee

:18:24.:18:29.

what a player he is. It was very important for us today and all these

:18:30.:18:37.

performances, and I think the 2-0 was a knock for West Ham and we kept

:18:38.:18:42.

on going and it was good football and we could have scored more.

:18:43.:18:48.

Liverpool looking good but the Premier League adventure is over for

Barcelona are top of the league. Real Madrid are second, level on
