A council whose computer systems were closed down by a cyber attack has said it will not be paying out a ransom.
Lincolnshire County Council’s systems were closed on Tuesday after an email was opened that triggered the malware attack.
Initially thought to have been asked for a £1m ransom, the council said it was actually asked to pay $500 (£350).
Judith Hetherington-Smith, from the council, said: “We are not going to pay… we wouldn’t pay a ransom fee.”
