Transnet hacked — South Africa's port systems offline

Transnet has been hacked, causing South Africa's ports and freight rail services to grind to a halt.

Supply chain management company ISS Global Forwarding announced on Twitter that it received information that Transnet was the victim of a cyberattack.

Hat tip to the forum members who alerted us to this hack.

Just spoke to a client [insurance broker] and he said one of their clients' monthly premium went from R20k to 45k, after their previous term expired this month. (Through Santam - thanks to the KZN fiasco).

We can expect these additional costs to be passed on to us very soon.
This is the cherry on the cake for the freight industry.

Could get worse: expect to hear of claims rejected 'cos client's policies didn't include SASRIA

I bet its more than likely someone didnt pay a bill, and the systems got revoked.

We keep hearing how they havent paid bills, because well the money got displaced and their IT providers threaten to cut them off.

But it can be fixed by spending Billions more from the tax payer.

Not likely actually...

This is more widespread than just the Navis platform that runs the terminals.
