Microsoft shares plunge after the FBI announces new cyberattack

Microsoft shares plunged as the FBI announced it has uncovered new cyberattacks that have compromised the security of nearly every company in the U.S. and Europe.

The FBI announced Thursday that a team of cyber specialists had uncovered a new “malicious” piece of malware that targeted Microsoft, Adobe Systems, and other software companies.

But the company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The malware appeared to be an update to a previously disclosed piece of ransomware that was designed to steal the personal data of its victims.

The cyberattack is believed to be tied to an earlier one that the FBI said in October that infected more than 200,000 people in 20 countries.

It is the latest of a wave of cyberattacks on businesses and government officials that has targeted government agencies and businesses in the past several months.

The latest cyberattack was reported on Thursday by a government cybersecurity company, CrowdStrike.

The company said it believed the cyberattack to have been launched last year.

The new attack was carried out over the past week, the company said in a statement.

CrowdStrike said the attack targeted a Microsoft software update, which was installed on PCs of affected organizations.

It said it had no way of knowing whether the malware was connected to the earlier ransomware.

“The attack was aimed at Microsoft’s Windows operating system, which Microsoft provides to organizations to help them keep their systems secure,” the company wrote in a blog post.

Microsoft declined to comment on the breach, saying in a written statement that the company “does not comment on specific cyberattacks.”

But the latest cyber attack comes at a time of heightened national security concerns.

On Monday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order barring immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries and blocking refugees from entering the U., a move that many say is aimed at cracking down on terrorism and illegal immigration.

Earlier this month, a cybersecurity company released a report alleging that the National Security Agency spied on German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The report said that the NSA had intercepted Merkel’s cell phone calls, including one that included her call to Trump.
