Maersk has announced that new protective measures are in place following the cyber attack it suffered in late June.
The Danish company noted in a statement: “This virus attack was a previously unseen type of malware, and updates and patches applied to both the Windows systems and our antivirus were not an effective protection in this particular case.”
The company has said a forensic investigation into the virus attack is being conducted and a full recovery is underway.
Maersk issued a notice to reassure customers, saying: “While our operations and communications have been significantly affected by this virus attack, no data breach or data loss to third-parties is known to have occurred as of this date.
“In response to this new type of malware, we have put in place different and further protective measures,” it added.
