Ukraine's energy ministry website hacked: spokeswoman

The website of Ukraine’s energy and coal ministry website has been hit by a cyber attack, though the websites of state-run energy companies have not been affected, the ministry’s spokeswoman said by phone.

As of 0734 GMT, a message posted in English on the website was demanding a ransom paid in Bitcoin to recover encrypted files.

“Our specialists are working right
now ... We do not know how long it will take to resolve the issue,” the spokeswoman said. “Ukrenergo, Energoatom - everything is okay with their sites, it’s only our site that does not work.”
