The WannaCry ransomware virus has now hit Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) and nearly three dozen computers have been affected.
The news has been confirmed by an official of TTD, a trust which runs the famous Lord Venkateswara temple.
Devasthanam PRO Talari Ravi said today, “Of the over 2,500 computers, three dozen computers installed for local administration at the TTD headquarters were attacked by the online virus.”
The affected computers were all old versions which were later updated. He further added that the virus issue has also been fixed completely.
A few hundred of the updated computers attached to the hill temple and and others offering e-services to devotees were not hit as TTD’s IT wing, in collaboration with IT major TCS, had taken all precautionary measures, said Ravi.
