APMT crippled by Petya cyber attack

Hackers target European businesses banks services in new cyberattacks

One of the world's largest shipping companies, A.P. Moller-Maersk Group (Maersk), confirmed Wednesday that it was part of the Peyta global cyber attack that plagued several companies on June 27.

Due to limited access to some of its computer systems, Maersk also has problems processing orders taken just before the breakdown, he said.

The cyber attack on Maersk has the potential to throw global container supply chains into chaos, according to Lars Jensen, chief executive of maritime cyber security firm CyberKeel. "At the present time, we are unfortunately unable to serve new quotes or accept future bookings", Maersk said. The attack would appear to have particularly impacted its container line and container terminals with both divisions websites down and reports of disruption at APM Terminals facilities in Asia, Europe and the US.

If that happens, one of Temer's closest allies, lower house speaker Rodrigo Maia would become interim president. Brazil's benchmark Bovespa index was down 0.8% and the local currency slipped 0.6% in late afternoon trading.

As for now, all immediate vessel operations will continue as planned, making the majority of planned port calls. "Precautionary measures have been taken to ensure continued operations".

A spokesman for France's state railway operator SNCF said their systems had been attacked, but there had been no impact on the company. The Dutch port of Rotterdam, one of Europe's biggest, said Wednesday that two container terminals operated by Maersk's APM had stopped activities.

Shipping Ministry also said, JNPT has opened up its parking lots for cargo destined to the private terminal.

Worldwide steel and mining company EVRAZ also said it had been a target of a hacker attack.

In Aarhus, the biggest container terminal in Maersk's home country Denmark, APM Terminals was using alternative methods of communication when loading and offloading vessels. The company said it has contained the issue and is working on a technical recovery plan with its IT-partners and global cybersecurity agencies. "We are looking at how fast it can be restarted (at the terminal)", he said. "They are trying to work manually", a senior JNPT official told PTI last night.

Russia's top oil producer Rosneft said on Tuesday its servers had been hit by a large-scale cyberattack, but its oil production was unaffected.
