Cyber attackers hacked a Broome camping store and big miners could be next, expert warns | ABC News (Australia)

Australian Information Security Incident Reported: July 19 2017

A Broome camping and fishing store got a shock when it fell victim to a cyber attack — and experts say WA’s critical infrastructure is not immune.

Bruce Bechly got a rude shock when he tried to fire up the computers one morning at the camping and fishing store he manages in Broome.

The store’s point-of-sale data had been locked by cyber attackers, who were demanding a $5,000 ransom to release it.
