Kate Green responds to reports government laptops given to students for at home learning have virus connecting to a Russian server

Kate Green MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to reports that government laptops given to schools for students to use at home have come pre-installed with a virus attempting to connect them to a Russian server, said:

“These are deeply concerning reports, and they must be investigated and resolved as a matter of urgency.

“Gavin Williamson must decide if he is going to put in place a credible plan for children to learn at home, or if he will just tell the Russian server to go away and shut up.”
