New cyberattack causes mass disruption in Europe

Several multinational companies said Tuesday they were targeted in an international cyberattack which started in Russia and Ukraine before spreading to western Europe. British advertising giant WPP, Danish sea transport company Maersk, and the French industrial group Saint-Gobain all said they came under attack and put protection protocols in place to avoid data loss.
