Governments and companies reported Monday more infected computers stemming from a global cyberattack that wreaked havoc through the weekend, as IT departments around the world kicked off a fourth day trying to determine the scope of damage and recover from it.
The cyberattack hit businesses, hospitals and government agencies in at least 150 countries. Early Monday, governments and companies in Asia, including Japanese conglomerate Hitachi Ltd. and a chain of movie-theaters in South Korea, disclosed new infections.
Chinese state media reported nearly 40,000 public and private institutions had been hit in the country. The official Cyberspace Administration of China said victims included government agencies and private corporations, hitting sectors including education, banking and information technology.
