On November 16th 2018, a report by the Hong Kong Free Press stated that banned pro-independence party leader, Andy Chan, and his lawyers were the target of a sophisticated cyber attack effort; reportedly originating from mainland china according to IP logs.
While we may not agree with Mr. Chan’s stance on Hong Kong politics, the fact that his lawyers were being targeted over instant messaging software and through spear-phishing attempts on their email should be of great concern to the entire business community in Hong Kong.

The Trojan.Ransom.WannaCrypt Worm targeted Microsoft Windows operating systems by encrypting files on the system and demanding a bitcoin payment to release the computer back to the user. The attack was spread via Phishing Emails and vulnerabilities in unpatched (and outdated) Windows Operating systems including Windows XP.

According to Hong Kong Free Press a network server at the Bridge Project’s site headquarters was locked down by Hackers who demanded a ransom to release the server back to the contractors. When Hong Kong police were notified of the event the Hackers deleted some files before unlocking the system for use by the Highways Department and relevant contractors.
