The Swedish central bank, Sveriges Riksbank, has restored its human resources (HR) and salary system following a ransomware attack on the third-party provider hosting it. The attack occurred on the system, known as Primula, which is also used by other government agencies. The system was made available by the vendor, Tietoevry, on 2 February but only became fully operational on 6 February due to the need for internal controls.
