Cyber attack led to Bristol Airport blank screens



Bristol Airport has blamed a cyber attack for causing flight display screens to fail for two days.

An airport spokesman said the information screens were taken offline early on Friday to contain an attack similar to so-called "ransomware".

They are now working again at "key locations" including in departures and arrivals, and work is continuing to get the whole site back online.

The spokesman said no "ransom" had been paid to get the systems working again.

Ransomware is a form of malware in which computer viruses threaten to delete files unless a ransom is paid.
