In this news, we discuss the Container shipping group CMA CGM resumes online services after cyber attack.
LONDON (Reuters) – CMA CGM, the world’s fourth largest container shipping group, said it has restored online shopping services after a cyber attack last month crippled business.
French company CMA CGM first reported the incident on September 28, saying it had shut down access to its online services after malware targeted its edge servers.
“The e-commerce of the CMA CGM Group sites are back online with all of their major operational features, ”the company said in a statement on Sunday. “The essential applications and functionalities are now operational and secure.”
In another incident, the United Nations maritime agency, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), said on October 1 that its site The Web and its intranet had been disabled by a sophisticated cyber attack and its IT specialists shut down major systems to prevent further damage.
The IMO resumed full services a week later and an IMO spokesperson said it had foiled cyber attacks in the past, but was the first to have services disabled.
