Chernobyl nuclear power plant hit by cyber attack

Pravda reports that computers at Chernobyl nuclear plant have been infected by the virus.

Staff were told to shut down their computers after several were infected by what appeared to be a virus, shift director Vladimir Ilchuk told Ukrainskaya Pravda.

There was no threat of a radiation leak as a result, he added.

The Ukrainian state news agency has said all technology systems at the nuclear plant are working normally. It reportedly switched its radiation monitoring system to manual after reports a cyber attack had hit organisations in the country including the National Bank of Ukraine.

The AFP news agency: Chernobyl’s radiation monitoring system is being affected by the cyber attack, according to a spokeswoman.
