Firms around the globe are reporting that they have been hit by a major cyber-attack.
British advertising agency WPP is among dozens of firms reporting problems.
Ukrainian firms, including the state power distributor and Kiev's main airport were among the first to report issues.


Network down
Others reporting problems include the Ukrainian central bank, the aircraft manufacturer Antonov, and two postal services.
Russian oil producer Rosneft and Danish shipping company Maersk also say they face disruption, including its offices in the UK and Ireland.
"We can confirm that Maersk IT systems are down across multiple sites and business units due to a cyber-attack," the Copenhagen-headquartered firm said via Twitter.


Spanish media reports that the offices of large multinationals such as food giant Mondelez and legal firm DLA Piper have suffered attacks.
And French construction materials company St Gobain has said that it had fallen victim.

That´s a lot off industry targets in many different places. Seems targeted. Wonder how they want to monetize this, smth Team Wannacry failed at.
