The attackers' fee is currently set at €400 worth of bitcoin, though this amount is said to double after three days.

After launching from a location in St Petersburg, Russia last Wednesday, the virus spread rapidly through the council's computer network through phishing emails. While some machines have been updated with antivirus software to block it successfully, many are still at risk.
