Maritime Cyber Alliance is currently translating a full forensic report from Germany following an incident involving the sale of a vessel and the commission pertaining to it. 


Incident Overview:

• The incident saw hackers breach the company's systems for some 200 days.

• Hackers watched two ship sale commissions process before attacking the third

• Hackers diverted company email for 12 minutes with PDF details which they then altered - the client bank paid to this new account.

• The shipping company took quick action with full IT forensic follow up and issued court orders against the fraudster. 

• Stolen funds were identified and returned. 

The full translation of the incident will be posted here on completion.
