Hundreds of UK companies have been compromised as part of a global campaign linked to Chinese hackers.


Cyber-security firm Eset said more than 500 email servers in the UK may have been hacked, and many companies are not aware they are victims of the attack.

It comes as governments around the world warn organisations to secure their systems.

But some experts fear it may be too late, as at least 10 hacking teams are capitalising on the chaos.


The UK's National Cyber Security Centre has joined US authorities in issuing warnings about the hack, but says it is still assessing the situation for UK businesses.


Meanwhile, the Norwegian cyber-authority is actively scanning for at-risk companies in the country and warning them directly.
