Kaseya cyber attack: CERT NZ suspects more organisations will find ransomware today

From Morning Report, 7:18 am on 5 July 2021

The full impact of the global ransomware attack on New Zealand organisations will become more apparent this morning.

Some service providers in New Zealand that use Kaseya VSA management software may not yet know if they've been affected.

It is known that some schools seem to have been affected, with the Ministry of Education confirming it's investigating.

So far hundreds, if not thousands, of organisations globally are affected - including five hundred Swedish supermarkets and hundreds of American businesses.

CERT NZ incident response manager Nadia Yousef spoke to Corin Dann.
