Petya hits global supply chain

Operations at one of the terminals at India’s largest container port JNPT have been disrupted by the Petya ransomware attack, the port said yesterday, as the malware’s potential to disrupt the global supply chain unfolds.
The impacted terminal at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust on  the outskirts of Mumbai is operated by Danish shipping giant AP Moller-Maersk (APM)  which had confirmed the day before  that the cyber attack had caused outages in its computer systems globally after its offices in the Hague had been targetted.
The Indian port has been trying to clear containers manually, but operational capacity has dropped to a third at the terminal according to the port’s chairman Anil Diggika. “This is fallout from a  global cyber attack. We are hopeful that operations will normalise in a day,” he said
Petya is believed to have  hit 17 of APM’s  terminals, including two in Rotterdam and 15 in other ports across the world.
