Stocks of Cybersecurity companies rise after global ransomware attack
A global ransomware attack that disrupted hospitals, factories, schools, and shops forced the investors on Monday to purchase stocks that would benefit cybersecurity funding by the government agencies and firms.
The attack started spreading across the world on Friday and by the end of Monday, it had locked many computers in about 150 different countries. Now the experts are warning that this attack could come back with a bigger force as more and more employees checked their emails.
According to reports collected by European Union police agency Europol, the attack affected as many as 200,000 machines.
