Manchester United held to ransom for ‘millions of pounds’ by cyber hackers

Manchester United is being held to ransom ‘for millions of pounds’ by cyber hackers who hacked into the club’s IT systems.

It is understood the hackers are threatening to release sensitive information unless they receive a serious sum of cash.

A club statement read:

“Manchester United can confirm that the club has experienced a cyber attack on our systems.

“The club has taken swift action to contain the attack and is currently working with expert advisers to investigate the incident and minimise the ongoing IT disruption.

“Although this is a sophisticated operation by organised cyber criminals, the club has extensive protocols and procedures in place for such an event and had rehearsed for this eventuality.

“Our cyber defences identified the attack and shut down affected systems to contain the damage and protect data.”Club channels, including our website and app, are unaffected and we are not currently aware of any breach of personal data associated with our fans and customers.

“We are confident that all critical systems required for matches to take place at Old Trafford remain secure and operational and that tomorrow’s against West Bromwich Albion will go ahead.”
