Ukraine has been affected by massive cyberattacks targeting the country’s government, banks and companies, as well as the capital’s airports. Cybersecurity specialists say the attack was the same virus that hit Russian oil company Rosneft.

“Our network seems to be down, too, in case you wondered! This picture is on all of the Cabinet computer screens,” the country’s vice prime minister, Pavel Rozenko, posted on Facebook, along with a picture of a computer starting up after an apparent error. “Computers aren’t functioning in the government building,” the Kiev authorities told Interfax-Ukraine news agency. Security forces said that the intelligence services are looking into the cyberattacks.

A blackmail encryption virus was used in the attack. Screenshots of affected computers posted online show screens demanding $300 worth of bitcoin as ransom for the encrypted data. https://archive.is/3Pwrx
