WannaCry ransomware that claimed hundreds of thousands of victims across 150 countries has hit speed and intersection cameras in Victoria Austrailia, Radio 3AW has reported.

According to the radio station, 55 cameras in the state belonging to vehicle monitoring and enforcement service Redflex were infected with the ransomware after a rogue USB was inserted by someone performing maintenance on the now-infected cameras.

It is understood that the infection came as a result of “human error” rather than a targeted attack aimed at holding the Australian state to ransom.

The cameras are not connected to the internet, however, which means the ransomware has not been spread throughout the field, 3AW told its listeners on Thursday.
