Petya Ransomware Campaign 

New Zealand cyber security agencies – the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and CERT NZ - are aware of international reports of a new international ransomware campaign. The ransomware has been identified as “Petya”. 

The New Zealand National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) provides services to government agencies, critical infrastructure providers and organisations of national significance, to assist them to defend against cyber-borne threats. The NCSC has released an advisory relating to this campaign directly to our customers.
