BSI President Arne Schoenbohm, in a statement, urged companies hit by the virus to report attacks through normal confidential channels to the agency, and said no payments should be made to hackers under any circumstances."WannaCry is another urgent wakeup call to invest more in IT security," Schoenbohm said.
