Powerful computer virus could start emptying bank accounts in a fortnight...

...unless Britons protect against attack now, National Crime Agency warns.

Computer users were last night warned to take urgent action to protect themselves from a global cyber virus pandemic.

Police across the globe launched an unprecedented attack on high-tech criminals behind software causing misery to millions.

The computers of more than 15,000 people in the UK are already infected with a virus that could cost our economy ‘millions’, the National Crime Agency (NCA) warned.

But the grip of those behind the so-called ‘malware’ has been weakened by a counter attack on the servers which control the software.

Computer experts said computer users must install anti-virus software and update their operating systems to the latest versions to stop it regaining its hold.

‘It’s not just computers, this kind of malware is now being hitting our mobile phones.’
