    The article is still developing here: https://www.windowscentral.com/new-ransomware-attack-appears-be-making-its-way-across-europe?utm_medium=slider&utm_campaign=navigation&utm_source=wp

    But I thought governments, institutions would have learned their lessons after the last major malware attack

    So how does this happen? Not for the same companies obviously as that would be just plain ridiculousness but for the new companies that got attacked

    You would think they would have learned their lessons and made strides in updating all their systems and tightening their security systems

    And why are the attacks predominantly in Europe? Is it because the online network and systems are more in depth or there's a way these scammers and malware creators can target specific regions or systems?

    -The malware is still new. No way that any company could have planned out a proper full update to their entire infrastructure in such a short period of time.
    -Some companies don't have the budget and may not see the potential losses as a high risk. Especially if it didn't get them the first time. They may not realize it was a fluke because of the domain change.
