Man Utd ‘being held to ransom for millions’ by hackers threatening to release data

Manchester United are reportedly being held to ransom by cyber criminals a week after being the victims of an attack.

The Red Devils were attacked via a sophisticated method with the club having brought in a team of technical experts in an attempt to thwart the hackers.

Though the Daily Mail report that the hackers still have United in their grip and are holding to club to ‘ransom for millions of pounds’.

The National Cyber Security Centre has confirmed they are helping United amid their technical crisis.

It said: “The NCSC is aware of an incident affecting Manchester United Football Club and we are working with the organisation and partners to understand impact.”

The Mail add that the lapse of security is far more serious that first feared with United’s network having been infected by ransomware.

It’s reported that United face the option of having to pay up or risk seeing highly sensitive information leaked.

The amount the hackers, whose identity is unknown, is not known though an EFL club was hit with a £5m demand last year.

A statement from United read: “Following the recent cyber attack on the club, our IT team and external experts secured our networks and have conducted forensic investigations.

“This attack was by nature disruptive, but we are not currently aware of any fan data being compromised.

“Critical systems required for matches to take place at Old Trafford remained secure and games have gone ahead as normal.

“The club will not be commenting on speculation regarding who may have been responsible for this attack or the motives behind it.”
