Cyber Attack Leads to Twenty-Four Million Dollar Loss

Norsk Hydro, a Norwegian aluminum company that employs over 30,000 people, has been hit by malware just last week. They said they are slowly bringing affected systems back online, but this incident will still cost the company about 300 million Norwegian Kroners, or twenty-four million US Dollars in damages.
