The Australian government has labeled a cybersecurity incident at ports operator DP World Australia as “serious and ongoing.” Since Friday, operations at ports in several states have been suspended due to the breach. DP World Australia, which handles nearly half of the country’s goods flow, is investigating possible data breaches and testing crucial systems for the resumption of normal operations. The affected container terminals are located in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Fremantle in Western Australia. Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil expressed concern about the incident on social media platform X. DP World has not provided a comment on when operations will resume, and the Australian Federal Police are currently investigating the breach. The National Cyber Security Coordinator, Darren Goldie, stated that the interruption is expected to continue for several days and will impact the movement of goods in and out of the country. DP World operates in 18 locations in the Asia-Pacific region and employs over 7,000 people.
