JOHANNESBURG, July 22 (Reuters) – South African state-owned logistics company Transnet has been hit by an alleged cyberattack, three sources with first-hand knowledge told Reuters on Thursday that affected some operations at its largest port in Durban.
“We were told it was a cyber attack,” said a source in the port of Durban, one of the busiest ports in Africa.
“The terminals can’t work, we can’t load or unload anything. That will have a big impact on business.”
Transnet did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
