NTPC confirms ‘cyber attack’ from unknown source on Thursday

Will the Mounties get their man?…:

The Northwest Territories Power Corporation’s (NTPC) website went down Thursday afternoon, leaving some pages to show what appears to be a ransomware message from unknown hackers.

In a news release Thursday evening, the power corporation confirmed it had suffered a “cyber attack from an unknown source.” It stated that the attack came early Thursday morning, and that an investigation is underway.

“No timetable has been set for completion of the investigation,” the news release reads in part.

“NTPC has been in communication with the territorial and federal governments as well as the Canadian cyber security agency. NTPC is assessing whether the generation, transmission and distribution systems have been impacted.”
