If anymore evidence was needed that SMEs are subject to Cyber attacks, then this provides it.

A cyber-security incident at a conveyancing firm is being investigated by police after systems went down and house sales were delayed.

Premier Property Lawyers (PPL) based in Enderby, Leicestershire, was unable to access IT systems following the incident on 7 November.

It left thousands of buyers in limbo with transactions not being processed.

Leicestershire Police said it was "working to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident".

While the exact details around it have not been disclosed, PPL said cyber experts had been called in to resolve the issue.
