Looks like NCP Car Parks has been hit by a virus that’s creating merry mayhem with all of the car parking meters across the UK. Details are sketchy at the moment but it appears the entire network is being taken offline. I happened to be chatting to one of the meter tech’s who told me what had happened and that every parking meter in the UK was ‘going all weird’ and had to be turned off because of a virus.
NCP, who run the largest network of privately owned car parks in the UK were unavailable for comment on the outage although customer services has confirmed all UK car parking meters are being taken offline due to a virus striking the network.
It’s unclear at the moment whether credit card information has found its way from the NCP meters to whoever planted the virus.
