Transnet, a state-owned South African rail, port and pipeline company, suffered a cyberattack July 22 and has been forced to halt operations.
The logistics firm stopped operations at container terminals in Durban, Ngqura, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, South Africa.
“Transnet, including Transnet Port Terminals, experienced an act of cyberattack, security intrusion and sabotage, which resulted in the disruption of TPT normal processes and functions or the destruction or damage of equipment or information,” Bloomberg reported on a note Transnet sent to customers.
