  • Supermarket chain Coop says it will open all of its stores on Thursday, after they closed due to last week's extensive IT attack.
  • Since the attack last Friday, technicians have worked to restart every checkout at all of the chain's 800 stores.
  • "Coop is one of the businesses hit hardest. To not be operating at full capacity for nearly a week is quite remarkable," says Swedish Radio's IT expert Sven Carlsson.
