A.P. Moller-Maersk (MAERSKb.CO) said on Thursday its anti-virus software was not effective against a new type of malware that hit the Danish shipping giant last month, but said further protective measures have now been put in place. "This virus attack was a previously unseen type of malware, and updates and patches applied to both the (Microsoft (MSFT.O)) Windows systems and our antivirus (program) were not an effective protection in this particular case," Maersk said in a statement. "In response to this new type of malware, we have put in place different and further protective measures," it added.
Maersk said it was too early to predict the financial impact of last month's global Petya cyber attack that hit the shipping giant's computers and delayed cargoes, but added that normal operations had resumed at its ports. A.P. Moller-Maersk, Danish owner of the world's biggest container shipping line, operates 76 ports via its APM Terminal division and was one of the many firms hit by the ransomware virus along with Russia's Rosneft and advertising agency WPP. For the shipping sector, this was among the biggest-ever disruptions given Maersk handles one out of seven containers shipped globally.
Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk expects container shipments to be back to normal early next week, it said on Thursday, as the impact of last week's cyber attack extends into its third week. Maersk, which handles one in seven containers shipped globally, said this week it had restored its major IT systems, but was still handling a backlog of orders and was working to bring operations at its ports back to normal. "Where we are pleased with the progress we have made to be able to serve customers well on exports, we are very aware that the import experience has not yet been fully brought up to the level it should be," Maersk said in a statement.
