French government cyber security company ANSSI stated on automaker Renault was not the only entity hit by the ransomware cyber attack recently and warned of other possible attacks soon.

“There are others,” Guillaume Poupard, head of the company, ANSSI, stated. The federal government body was dealing with the victims on recovery.

Companies all over the world rushed on Saturday to prepare for a renewed cyber attack, convinced that a lull in a computer offensive that has halted automobile factories, health centers, schools and other companies in around 100 nations was just temporary.

The rate of the attack by a devastating virus dubbed WannaCry slowed late on Friday, after the so-called “ransomware” locked up over 100,000 computers, requiring owners pay to $300 to $600 get their data back.

“We should anticipate similar attacks regularly in the coming days and weeks,” Poupard stated. “Attackers update their software … other attackers will learn from the technique and will perform attacks”.

French automaker Renault stopped production at numerous sites on Saturday to prevent the spread of a global cyber attack that struck its computer systems.
