CMA CGM Confirms Cyber Attack

French liner major CMA CGM on Monday confirmed that it was dealing with a cyber-attack impacting peripheral servers.

The attack does not include CEVA Logistics.

“As soon as the security breach was detected, external access to applications was interrupted to prevent the malware from spreading. Our teams are fully mobilized and access to our information systems is gradually resuming,” the company said in an emailed statement.

“The CMA CGM network remains available to the Group’s customers for all booking and operation requests. An investigation is underway, conducted by our internal experts and by independent experts.”

It was observed earlier in the day that, several websites of the French liner major have been down due to reported IT issues.

The company shared on its Twitter account that external access to its IT applications and booking systems were unavailable.

These include the business sites for CMA CGM, APL, ANL and CNC.

Some media outlets reported that the company has been hit by a ransomware attack by the Ragnar Locker group.
