City Power, responsible for powering South Africa’s financial capital Johannesburg, said on Thursday it had been hit by a ransomware virus that had encrypted all of its databases, applications and network. The municipal body, owned by the City of Johannesburg, said its website was down and that customers would struggle to access a number of services, in particular buying electricity and uploading invoices, and it could affect its ability to respond to some outages.
