Experts have warned that cyber attacks are likely to worsen as more people return for a new work week.

Microsoft issued a statement saying 150 countries have been hit by cyber-attacks and more than 200 000 computers have been affected since Friday.

CEO of Performanta Group, Guy Golan, says people should not double click emails they do not recognise or if there is anything suspicious.
