Bengaluru: IT major Wipro on Friday said it has reinforced security measures at all its office locations after receiving a second threat email.

In a statement the company said, “Wipro confirms that it has received a second threatening e-mail…. There is no impact on the company’s operations”.

An unidentified source for the second time had sent an e-mail demanding Rs 500 crore in bitcoin and threatened a bio-attack on employees.

Earlier last month, Wipro had said it had received a threatening mail from an unidentified source and filed a complaint with the local law enforcement authorities.

After that threat mail, the company had augmented security at all its office locations.
