UK's biggest forensic services firm pays ransom to criminals after hackers launch cyber-attack on its IT systems

UK's biggest forensic services firm pays ransom to criminals after hackers launch cyber-attack on its IT systems Eurofins Scientific, which has laboratories in Cambridgeshire, Oxfordshire and Derbyshire, was infected with a 'ransomware' computer virus a month ago. Eurofins is responsible for more than 50% of the UK's forensic science market and processes more than 70,000 for police every year. Court cases and criminal investigations were put on hold by UK police after the attack. The firm's IT systems were disrupted and taken offline as a result and the company released a statement saying the attack had been 'highly sophisticated and well-resourced.' Just a week ago the firm said its operations were 'returning to normal.

The issue began at 5.08pm on Wednesday afternoon.

The airport say there is already a divert plan in place, and inbound flights are being sent to other airports.

Gatwick, in West Sussex, is Britain's second busiest airport, behind Heathrow.
