WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A small number of U.S. critical infrastructure operators have been affected by the global ransomware worm, but there has been no significant disruption in their work, a Department of Homeland Security official told Reuters on Monday.

There have been no victims of the cyber attack within the U.S. federal government at this time, the official said.
