JNPT hit by Ransomware cyber attack

Operations at a Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust terminal in Mumbai were forced to shut after being impacted by the WannaCry ransomware cyber attack.

The impacted terminal is operated by AP Moller-Maersk, which also reported disruptions in Los Angeles. JNPT chairman Anil Diggikar said the port has been trying to clear containers manually and is operating at about a third of its capacity.

“We have been informed that the operations at GTI have come to a standstill because their systems are down (due to the malware attack). They are trying to work manually,” a senior JNPT official told news agency PTI.
