DoS attacks and ransomware programmes that encrypt files were on the rise in Finland in 2015, Finnish telecom authority Ficora announced citing The National Cyber Security Centre Finland (NCSC-FI) review.  The year got off to a busy start as several Finnish banks were targeted by DoS attacks. There were also many incidents involving websites used to spread malware. During the worst times, the NCSC-FI handled almost a hundred cracked Finnish websites in a week. The number of advanced cyber attacks targeted at governmental organisations and companies increased significantly.
