The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is continuing to respond to an ongoing ransomware attack thought to be caused by international serious and organised cyber crime groups. The agency has confirmed the theft of 1.2 GB of data following the “significant cyber attack”, which began on Christmas Eve and affects its contact centre, internal systems and internal communications. Early indications suggest that at least four thousand files may have been accessed and stolen by criminals, it said.
