Cyber-attacks against global shipping have spiked 400% since Covid-19 lockdowns. And this was before the two high profile hacking victims in the last month alone – the world’s fourth largest shipping company, French giant CMA-CGM, and the UN’s own global shipping regulator, the IMO.

Now questions are being asked whether Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL)-chartered Wakashio, could have been a dry run for cyber hackers this summer that led to its grounding and subsequent oil spill in Mauritius.
