Global cyber attacks

My computer has just shown the same message the NHS had... And my head of IT has come screaming round the office shouting at everyone to unplug their computers. Turns out WPP has been hit Globally and we are out of action for the forseeable.

Believed to have come via the Ukraine issue.

Anyone else affected?

  • WPP are one of my clients, they've been hit globally - they're on a complete shut down at the moment!
  • Grim stuff.
  • Yep we are on shutdown - in an emergency board meeting now.

    BBC just rocked up outside the office and look like they are broadcasting.

    This meeting is boring so am getting a Roland Out sign and am gonna run past in my pants waving that at the camera.

    That should get their attention

    That'll restrict it to post-watershed.
  • Got my work aswell, bit of excitement watching everybody scramble about! But we are totally out of action
  • What's your plan of action for this then? Are you told to go home and chill or are they getting the carbon copy paper out for you to work manually whilst they fire up the carrier pigeons?
  • Well, the NHS was slaughtered for having out of date systems and not upgrading when advised to. Probably rightly so. I wonder what Sir Martin Sorrell's excuse will be?

  • I know a fella in Deptford Broadway who may be able to fix it for you.....he does mobile phone repairs mostly but can tackle some computer repairs as well....his name is Jamal......tell him I sent you and if you're lucky he'll do you a special deal.
  • At the end of the day it is just an advert asking for money.

    Fuck all we can do.

    Can't even go for a decent poo. The wifi is out and there is no 4G in the gents.

    A shit without your phone is a terrible thing

    Just reading this in trap 6 and the thought sent a shiver...

    Worked with some WPP companies and they're full of idiots, just takes the one of them to click on something they shouldn't and poof

    To be fair they should know not to watch that sort of filth at work.
  • My friend has had this happen at their company too and they're completely wiped out. Were just told to go home apparently.
