Second Wave of Cyberattacks Beginning

May 15, 2017

According to some British cyber experts, the massive cyberattack that occurred last Friday that affected governments, businesses, and hospitals around the world is just the beginning. A second wave of attacks is already occurring and they are coming from multiple unknown sources and will be mostly keenly be felt early in the work week as computers in many locations are turned back on. The attacks are using malware apparently stolen from inside the United States government, specifically the National Security Agency. The stolen malware was leaked to WikiLeaks, and is now in the hands of other sources. So far, the attacks have all occurred outside of the United States, but that is expected to change in the next few days and federal agencies are doing what they can to prepare.
