London Airport* serves more than 300,000 passengers each day as they travel to 94 countries around the globe.  On April 23, 2018, the cyber-terrorist known only as “The Wolf” used the airport’s connected lighting systems to gain access and spread malware across the network.

The IT security experts immediately turned to threat logs from their HP Enterprise printers as part of the investigation to isolate and stop the attack.
