May 16, 2017
About 770 computers at Taiwan Power Co’s (Taipower, 台電) offices were
infected by WannaCry in Friday’s attack, but most have been repaired,
the state-run utility said yesterday.
The incident has not
affected electricity supply because the infected computers were used
mainly for administrative work, Taipower spokesman Lin Te-fu (林德福) said.
soon as the infection was detected on Saturday, the company
disconnected the computers from the Internet, updated them and began
repairing them, Lin said.
As of yesterday afternoon, only 152
computers had not yet been repaired, he said, adding that the work was
expected to be completed by the end of the day.
