Portugal’s National Cybersecurity Centre has confirmed that at least two Portuguese companies have been affected by a worldwide cyber attack.

The Portuguese Health Service has also taken the preventative measure of temporarily switching off computer access to the internet and e-mail. Companies across the globe are reporting that they have been struck by this major ransom ware cyber-attack.

The virus, the source of which is not yet known, freezes the user’s computer until an untraceable ransom is paid in the digital Bitcoin currency.
