Another cyber attack challenges CMA CGM

CMA CGM has suffered another cyber attack in less than one year from the previous security breach, which hit the company's peripheral servers and caused severe challenges in its Information Technology (IT) infrastructures.

The French shipping group has announced that a leak of data on limited customer information (first and last names, employer, position, email address and phone number) has been detected during its surveillance operations on the company's Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

"Our IT teams have immediately developed and installed security patches," said CMA CGM in its announcement.

The Marseille-based firm told its customers to "remain vigilant to any suspicious activity" and to follow the following practices to keep their account secure:

  • Do not share your account password or any personal information. CMA CGM will never ask them from you.
  • Always check the authenticity of an email requesting you to log in to our platforms (especially if requested to reset your password), even if it seems to be sent by the CMA CGM Group.

Cyber attacks are evolving into one of the most dangerous threats of the industry. The four largest container shipping companies, Maersk, MSC, COSCO and CMA CGM, have been hit by hackers in the last years, while during the recent months the South African port operator Transnet, Indian ports and even the International Maritime Organization (IMO) are among others, who have also suffered cyber attacks.
