KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-UA) warned on Monday of the threat of possible further virus attacks after malware was found in the IT system of Kiev's main airport over the weekend.

"Attention to all system administrators ... We recommend a check of log-files and information traffic," CERT-UA said.

A virus, similar to one which attacked three Ukrainian power firms in late December, was detected in a computer workstation of the IT network of Kiev's main airport Boryspil, according to the airport's press service.
