MAERSK GLOBAL IT BREAKDOWN
A massive ransomware attack has claimed another victim. The Maersk group, the world’s largest shipping company, reported a cyber attack has hit their computer systems causing various outages. Servers across India and Europe were affected and Maersk IT systems are down across multiple sites and business units, including container shipping, port and tugboat operations, oil tankers, and others.
Maersk IT is still assessing the extent of the breakdown to determine the impact to operations. Supplemental trade alerts will be sent as we learn more details.
