Ransomware Attack Cripples Indian Port Container Terminal JNCPT
Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal was hit by a suspected ransomware attack. JNPCT operations are down and they are unable to process containers. Vessels were diverted and JNPCT stopped accepting ships for loading/unloading at the port.
JNPCT is owned and operated by the port authority, while the other terminals are private. This mirrors a NotPetya attack that occurred at the Gateway Terminal India (GTI) terminal at the same port, owned by Danish AP Moller-Maersk (APM), in 2017. At the time, 17 APM terminals around the world were hit simultaneously.
