Container Line CMA CGM Hit by Cyberattack

French container shipping line CMA CGM SA said Monday it has shut down some of its technology systems as it copes with a cyberattack at two of its Asia-Pacific subsidiaries.

People involved in the matter said the carrier was investigating an encryption malware attack and that it had been contacted by someone claiming to be a hacker who asked for ransom in return for a decryption key.

“CMA CGM is currently dealing with a cyber-attack impacting peripheral servers,” the company said in a statement. “As soon as the security breach was detected, external access to applications was interrupted to prevent the malware from spreading.”
