Transnet ransomware hackers did not get a single cent

Transnet did not pay any money to the hackers responsible for bringing much of the company’s operations to a grinding halt through a ransomware attack on its IT systems in late July.

This was according to public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan, who recently updated the media on reforms at the state-owned transport company, including plans to draw on private investment to upgrade South Africa's port infrastructure.
 
Hmm.. they might not have gotten a cent (I wonder) but they sure showed Transnet not having a DR plan.
 
Probably didn't have the BEE credentials to receive the money.
or they dont want to scare their shareholders and the public into how big the payment was.
I mean it is quite a shameful thing after all.
 
Of course they didn't, if they knew how Mzansi works they would have had a BEE partner run by ANC cadres in which case would have got many millions

Agree with this.. we'll see in a few years time how much they paid and which corrupt official was involved

even that US pipeline company eventually paid, amount wasn't disclosed, but many millions I'm sure.

the Difference in SA is we have a heavily Corrupt government, who hides its misdeeds better and better every time they get busted.
 
You call THAT a victory ? You were DOWN for days and days. A private company in that position would have gone under.
