Europol says cyber attack is of 'unprecedented level'

The wave of cyber attacks wreaking havoc cross the globe is "at an unprecedented level", the European Union's law enforcement agency Europol has said.

The attacks will "require a complex international investigation to identify the culprits", the agency said in a statement.

French carmaker Renault said this morning it was among those hit by the global ransomware cyber attack that has infected tens of thousands of computers in nearly 100 countries.

It was the first major French company to report being affected by the malicious malware.

Production at Nissan's manufacturing plant in Sunderland, northeast England, has been affected.

A company spokesperson declined to confirm media reports that production at the plant, which employs 7,000, had been halted.

German rail operator Deutsche Bahn said its systems were infected.

It said that train services were not disrupted but some electronic boards at stations announcing arrivals and departures had been affected.
