Not much impact of malware attack on India yet: IT minister

New malware hits JNPT ops as APM Terminals hacked globally

A new type of ransomware has been making rounds around the world, very similar to the recent WannaCry. He said, "We have learnt that the Import General Manifesto server - the main business server - was under attack".

The Ministry of Shipping and JNPT have got onto the front foot trying to contain the disruption in operations at one of the port terminals in the wake of the latest malware attack.

Containers are piling up outside the port due to the delay in loading and unloading at Gateway Terminals India, he said.

Foreign media reports from the Netherlands capital The Hague quoting the pubcaster RTV Rijnmond said a new ransomware virus called Petya has hit 17 APM terminals, including two in Rotterdam and 15 in other parts of the world.

The ransomware attacks that have been experienced over the past year are increasingly making it clear the ease with which attackers are becoming a regular thing in almost all nations. "It has been informed by the private Terminal Operator that this disruption is a effect of a worldwide disruption being faced by them because of a cyber attack", a release stated.

Senators of both parties said their offices have received a steady flow of calls and emails from constituents opposing the bill . Later, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Rob Portman of OH also said they opposed the measure.

Businesses and government organizations in Russian Federation and Ukraine are among the most severely affected.

Kremlin-controlled Rosneft, Russia's largest crude producer, said it had avoided "serious consequences" from the "hacker attack" by switching to a backup system for managing production processes. But Tehan said "all indications would point to" it being the same virus. Sea Containers, the London building that houses WPP and agencies including Ogilvy & Mather, has been shut down, another person said.

The Kremlin says that a ransomware attack that has affected computers across the world highlights the need for close worldwide cooperation in fighting cybercrime.

He added that any response would take time to implement given the large volume of traffic handled by the port.

Use security tools on IT ministry website for higher safety. "The global attack has impacted APM terminal of the JNPT port which is run by AP Moller-Maersk".

The spread of the attack across the globe and into Asia underscores how ransomware is becoming a routine risk of doing business. Several Ukrainian ministries, local banks, and the Kyiv metro system were affected by the attack , the government said.

APM Terminals is a subsidiary of shipping giant Maersk, which has confirmed that it is suffering from a cyber attack.

Such attacks pose a grave threat to the economy and businesses. "If something as simple as system patches are being missed to let ransomware in, the prospect for robust protection of IoT devices does not look good".

The attack has hit Ukraine particularly hard.

United Kingdom media company WPP's website is down, and employees have been told to turn off their computers and not use Wi-Fi, according to a person familiar with the matter.
