UK National Cyber Security Centre says it is ‘aware of global ransomware incident’

The UK s National Cyber Security Centre says it is aware of a cyber attack spreading around the world amid fears of disruption to infrastructure including banking and transport.

We re aware of the global ransomware incident and are monitoring the situation closely, a spokesperson told The Independent, advising members of the public and businesses to check its website for guidance on keeping their systems secure. British advertising firm WPP said IT systems in several of its companies were affected by the attack, as Maersk employees were sent home from its offices in Berkshire.

The first reports came from Ukraine1, where state infrastructure including government-owned banks, energy firms, transportation and ministers computers were hit by the ransomware. Russian oil giant Rosneft, the world s largest shipping company Maersk and firms in India and Norway were among those affected.

Infected computers display a message demanding a payment of $300 ( 235) in Bitcoin to re-gain access to encrypted files. The Swiss government s Reporting and Analysis Centre said the Petya virus 2was believed to be responsible and was spreading by exploiting the SMB (Server Message Block) vulnerability .

Petya was previously blamed for disrupting systems in 2016 and works similarly to the WannaCry ransomware that infected more than 230,000 computers in 150 countries last month.

Maersk said its IT systems were down across multiple sites and businesses due to a cyber attack that could affect its global operations. Employees at Maersk s main UK office in Maidenhead said all staff had been locked out of their computers and sent home for the day. The Danish business congolmerate is the largest container shipping company in the world and also operates in the oil and gas sectors.

Seventeen shipping container terminals run by Maersk subsidiary APM Terminals have also been hacked, including two in Rotterdam and 15 in other parts of the world, according to Dutch television. Norway s national security agency said the ransomware was affecting an unnamed international company in the country. Rosneft, a Russian government-owned oil firm, said it was also targeted by a massive hacker attack on its servers, as was steel maker Evraz.

Ukraine s national bank, state power company and largest airport were among the targets first reported targets on Tuesday. The website of Boryspil International Airport during a cyber attack targeting Ukrainian infrastructure on 27 June 2017

Rozenko Pavlo, the deputy Prime Minister, said he and other members of the government were unable to access their computers. Ukrainian state-run aircraft manufacturer Antonov was among the companies hit, along with state power distributor Ukrenergo, which said the attack did not affect power supplies.

The National Bank of Ukraine said an unknown virus was to blame, saying several unnamed Ukrainian banks were affected along with financial firms.

As a result of cyber attacks, these banks have difficulties with customer service and banking operations, a statement said.

The National Bank bank is confident that the banking infrastructure’s defence against cyber fraud is properly set up and attempted cyber attacks on banks’ IT systems will be neutralised. Computers and departure boards for Boryspil International Airport in Kiev the largest in Ukraine were also down. The Ukrposhta state postal service, television stations and transport were affected by the attack, which left Kiev metro passengers unable to pay using bank cards.

Many ATMs were disabled, displaying the message left by hackers, as were tills in supermarkets. Emails hit as Parliament targeted by cyber security attack

Ukraine has blamed Russia for repeated cyber attacks targeting crucial infrastructure during the past three years, including one on its power grid that left part of western Ukraine temporarily without electricity in December 2015. Russia has denied involvement and the orchestrators of Tuesday s attack were not known, although onlookers estimated they could make billions of dollars from the hack.

The UK s Houses of Parliament were targeted in a separate attack 3on Friday that compromised up to 90 accounts as part of efforts to access the accounts of MPs, peers and their staff by searching for weak passwords.

The growth of global cyber attacks, including those targeting the election campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Emmanuel Macron, have sparked warnings of a permanent war online.4

Guillaume Poupard, director general of the National Cybersecurity Agency of France (ANSSI) said intensifying attacks were coming from unspecified states, as well as criminal and extremist groups.

We must work collectively, not just with two or three Western countries, but on a global scale, he added, saying attacks could aim at espionage, fraud, sabotage or destruction.

We are getting closer, clearly, to a state of war – a state of war that could be more complicated, probably, than those we’ve known until now.

A Sydney 2man has denied provoking a security guard before being punched and having his jaw broken outside a Gold Coast hotel over three years ago. Dennis Hecta Tipene Faulkner is on trial on one count of grievous bodily harm at Southport District Court after the incident outside the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Surfers Paradise on February 9, 2014. Alleged victim Dominic Beinke suffered a double fracture to his left jaw after being punched by Faulkner following a scuffle between the pair, Mr Beinke’s brother Patrick, and another guard. Bouncer Dennis Faulkner has pleaded not guilty to breaking a man’s jaw during a scuffle

Alleged victim Dominic Beinke shows the aftermath of his devastating injuries

Faulkner pleaded not guilty to the charge as the trial, set down for three days, began on Monday. The court heard the incident occurred shortly after Mr Beinke escorted Patrick from a friend’s engagement party back to the hotel where he was staying with another brother and his partner. After being let into the venue by security, the pair got into an argument with security when they were denied access to the hotel due to Patrick not having a key or identification. Mr Beinke told the court while his brother had got aggressive and demanded to be let into the hotel, he’d attempted to defuse an escalating situation.

CCTV footage played in court showed Mr Beinke and Patrick arguing with Faulkner. Mr Beinke claimed the guard said he was going to ‘knock out’ the pair. The alleged victim suffered a double fracture to his left jaw after being punched by Faulkner following a scuffle Further footage outside the hotel showed Patrick and the other guard scuffling on the ground when Faulkner swings a right fist into Mr Beinke’s jaw, felling him and leaving him momentarily unconscious. Faulkner’s barrister Chris Rosser said Mr Beinke and his brother had both been aggressive when they were denied access to the room, with Mr Beinke pushing his forehead against Faulkner’s. He said Mr Beinke’s claims Faulkner had promised to ‘knock out’ the pair was false and the pair had been constantly swearing and abusing the guard before the incident.

Mr Beinke denied provoking Faulkner before the attack on the Gold Coast in 2014 Mr Beinke denied Mr Rosser’s claims he’d called Faulkner a ‘dumb black c***’ and told him to ‘f*** off back to New Zealand’.

‘I do not agree with that at all,’ Mr Beinke said. ‘I was saying ‘I’m not going to fight you’.’ Mr Beinke admitted he and his brother were ‘somewhat’ intoxicated at the time of the incident but he ‘knew what was happening’.

The trial continues.

Pippa Middleton’s wedding: all the security rumours from ‘phone police’ to secret passwords and wristbands

Pippa Middleton1 s wedding to James Matthews2 has been described as the society event of the year, attended by a mixture of royals, sports superstars, celebrities and even members of the public.

But surprisingly, in this day and age of smartphones and social media, not one photo from inside the church or lavish reception has emerged3 , thanks to a range of heavy security measures.

While some – private security men, royal protection officers and CCTV – seem fairly standard, other rumoured measures verge on the bizarre, such as claims of phone police patrolling guests and issuing warnings, and special passwords created months ago. Mirror Celebs rounds up the security rumours:

Phone police patrol guests

This claim, which surfaced in the Daily Mail4 , alleges that a team of so called phone police were on hand during the day to stop guests taking any pictures on their mobile phones.

Apparently guests were given one warning if they did take such photos, but a second breach could result in being asked to leave the ceremony. While it s all totally unconfirmed by either Pippa or James, the fact that ZERO social media snaps have so far emerged despite a guest list of several hundred means that either a) guests were happy to oblige or b) the phone police did a very good job!

Social media picture ban

As well as phone police allegedly on duty, it s reported that Pippa asked guests not to post any pictures to social media5 . If true, she certainly wouldn t be the first high profile bride to do so .

Other famed weddings rumoured to have instilled a social media ban include Kim Kardashian and Kanye West s nuptials in 2014.

A source said before the nuptials: Pippa has complete control over the wedding 6 , right down to the finest details.

Guests have been told they will be banned from taking in cameras, although it is understood that they will be allowed to keep their phones . However, there s a strict no photos policy in place.

Pippa and James want it to be a very private event and do not want anything to distract from the fact they want it to remain a classy affair.

However, one guest who seemed to defy such a ban was Pippa’s uncle Gary Goldsmith, who merrily shared selfies of himself and daughter Tallulah7 ahead of the church service and in their car en route . He wasn’t in attendance at the reception, though, so didn’t post any photos from there.

Wristbands

One local, Elizabeth Mary Reeves, told BBC News8 that some lucky villagers were given silver wristbands with the date of the wedding enscribed on them, which allowed them access to the grounds of St . Mark’s Church and the chance to get closer to the wedding party.

Special passwords

According to E ! News9 , wedding guests were assigned a special password three months ago that was unique to them . When they arrived for the reception, guests had to show photo ID and have their special password checked off a list. They had to send their passport photo beforehand for recognitiion.

Scotland Yard royal protection officers

With several senior royals in attendance including Prince William, Prince Harry, Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Beatrice, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, perhaps it’s no surprise that security was super tight around the church and reception.

It’s reported Scotland Yard royalty protection officers were on hand during the day, while Daily Mail10 says armed police patrolled in a BMW 4×4.

No-fly zone over venue

Again, with so many senior royals present, it’s reported a no-fly zone was imposed over Bucklebury and Englefield from Friday at 6am until Sunday at 3pm. ITV News11 reports that ban includes flying drones, aircraft, balloons, kites and parachutes.

Four ex SAS soldiers patrolling the grounds

It was reported that four former SAS soldiers now working in private security had been drafted in to help with security on the day.

A source told The Sun12 ahead of the nuptials: There s a lot of security . It s as tight as you can get . They ve had dogs out all night . Four SAS men have been plotted up and swept the place for the last few days . They are like ghosts . You d never see them.”

Extra CCTV installed

According to Daily Mail13 , extra CCTV was installed around the church.

A security guard said: “We are leaving nothing to chance.”

Prince George and Princess Charlotte served as page boy and flower girl.

What everyone wore to Pippa’s wedding

After the church service at St . Mark’s, guests retreated to nearby Englefield House for champagne and toasts, before travelling to the Middleton family home, where a 100,000 marquee had been erected in the gardens.

As well as the usual speeches, drinks, gourmet meal and canapes, guests at the reception were also treated to a flyover by a World War II Spitfire15 .

The vintage aircraft buzzed over the skies above the 100,000 glass marquee in the Middleton family garden during the evening reception after the Middletons reportedly warned neighbours to expect a bit of noise and apologised for any inconvenience.
