According to a company statement, the CMA CGM Group is currently dealing with a cyber-attack impacting peripheral servers. All the websites of the French group's subsidiaries, including CMA CGM, APL, CNC and ANL, have been shutting down. CEVA Logistics is the only company of the group that is not affected by the malware attack. Unconfirmed reports say that the French carrier has been approached by hackers to pay them within two days in order to regain access to their systems.
Container-news.com reports that as soon as the security breach was detected, external access to applications was interrupted to prevent the malware from spreading, said the French company, and added that all their teams are fully mobilised and access to the information systems of the group is gradually resuming.
The CMA CGM network remains available to the Group's customers for all booking and operational requests, while an investigation is underway, conducted by CMA CGM's internal and independent experts.
