On Friday, a new variant of Bitpaymer disrupted work and demanded payment in bitcoin. IT staff worked over the weekend to get the network back up and running.

According to a spokesman, all security software and systems were up to date but the ransomware was deployed on the network anyway.

Most ransomware and malware infect systems via phishing emails.
