County controls access to webmail in libraries

Denbighshire County Council is advising people who normally use computers in the county’s libraries that access to webmail addresses is being temporarily suspended, in light of the recent cyber attacks.

Any incoming e-mails from those addresses will also go into quarantine.

The council says it is taking this step to mitigate any potential risks to Denbighshire’s systems and no security breaches have occurred.

Residents will be informed when the situation changes. People who normally use the following e-mail addresses will not be able to do so whilst the restrictions are in place:

hotmail.com
hotmail.co.uk
outlook.com
aol.com
Yahoo.com
Yahoo.co.uk
NHS.net
NHS.co.uk
gmail.com
NHS.uk

Meanwhile, the council is also urging the public to be generally vigilant with all e-mails received and the advice is not to open any email you are suspicious of, do not click on any links sent to you via an email and not to open any suspicious attachments.
