Petya Ransomware hits India’s Jawaharlal Nehru Port operations suspended

Following this, it was reported that Jawaharlal Nehru Port Terminal in Mumbai was disrupted.

"We have shut down a number of systems to help contain the issue", it said.

The group is "assessing and managing" the situation to minimise the impact on its customers and partners.

A JNPT official told the news agency that they have been informed that the operations at Gateway Terminals India, GTI, have come to a standstill due to the malware attack.

The virus - GoldenEye (a variant of the Petya ransomware) - hit Danish shipping and energy company Maersk, in turn affecting its global operations. Although operations are being conducted manually, very little work can actually be done manually, a senior official said.

"It has been informed by the private terminal operator (APM Maersk) that this disruption is a effect of a worldwide disruption being faced by them because of a cyber attack", the Ministry of Shipping said in a statement today.

Pipavav, which is also operated by APM Terminals, did not provide detail on the extent of the impact at its site, but a spokeswoman for APM said the port was "partially impacted". APM Terminals, a subsidiary of shipping giant Maersk, confirmed the cyber attack, however an APM spokesperson refused to comment.

Prasad said the government is keeping close watch on the issue.

An AFP report quoting the Ukrainian central bank said a cyber attack hit several lenders in the ex-Soviet republic, hindering operations and leading the regulator to warn other financial institutions to tighten security measures.

Asian business have been reporting that they have fallen victim to the major global ransomware cyber-attack which swept through Europe and the U.S. on Tuesday.
