Here is the sCammComm report into #WannaCry Ransomware infected camera system released today.

Interim report into impact on fixed road safety cameras operating in Victoria by malicious software July 7, 2017

The Minister for Police, The Honourable Lisa Neville MP, asked me to investigate the impact on fixed road safety cameras operating in Victoria by malicious software. The Minister wants to ensure the accuracy, reliability and integrity of the road safety camera system.

I am conscious of the need to minimise any delay in the justice system and to assist members of the public to deal with any infringement questions expeditiously. For this reason an interim report has been completed. My interim report deals with aspects of the viral infection, the integrity of the data , and the mechanisms which construct and communicate infringement data.

My intention is to deliver a further report dealing with other details of the incidents in due course.

Commissioner releases interim report into cameras affected by virus

Commissioner+releases+interim+report+into+cameras+affected+by+virus

The Road Safety Camera Commissioner has published an interim report following his investigation into the circumstances surrounding the road safety cameras affected by a software virus.
The Commissioner has found no evidence that the virus affected the integrity of any speed or red light infringements, or the accuracy of the fixed digital camera system. In his report, the Commissioner finds that:
“There is no evidence that the WannaCry infection has affected the integrity of Speed and Red-Light camera infringements

    • I am satisfied that the mechanisms that construct and communicate the infringement data are unaffected by the virus
    • I am satisfied that there is no evidence of any infringement data being in any way compromised
    • I am satisfied that devices which measure and record speed are external to the infected computers and are unaffected by the virus
    • I am satisfied with the accuracy and integrity of the infringements dated 6 June 2017 to 22 June 2017 (and thereafter)
    • I am satisfied that there is no evidence of any ongoing impact to the systems.
    • I applaud the caution shown by the authorities, but I find that there is no reason for the subject infringements to continue to be withheld”.

You can view the interim report at the Road Safety Camera Commissioner’s website. (or above)
All infringements were placed on hold pending the outcome of this investigation. Given the Commissioner’s interim report identifies no issues with the accuracy and integrity of these infringements, Victoria Police has announced that they will now be reissued.
