PARIS: A major cyberattack unfolded on Tuesday, striking banks, corporations and infrastructure in Ukraine and Russia before spreading to western Europe and then the United States.

Experts say the virus is a modified version of the so-called Petya ransomware, which hit last year and demanded money from victims in exchange for their data.

A similar virus called WannaCry infected more than 200,000 computers in more than 150 countries last month.

Following is a list of companies and organisations which say they have been a victim of the latest attack:

  1. Ukraine’s central bank, the National Bank of Ukraine
  2. Ukrainian bank Oschadbank
  3. Ukrainian delivery service company Nova Poshta
  4. Russian state oil giant Rosneft
  5. Kyivenergo, Kiev power company
  6. Radiation monitoring system at Chernobyl
  7. Website of Kiev’s Boryspil international airport
  8. Danish sea transport company Maersk
  9. British advertising giant WPP
  10. French industrial group Saint-Gobain
  11. US pharmaceutical giant Merck
  12. Spanish food giant Mondelez
  13. Spanish global legal firm DLA Piper

Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister Pavlo Rozenko tweeted a picture of a computer screen showing an error message.
 

"We also have a network 'down'," Rozenko said on Facebook. "This image is being displayed by all computers of the government."
