Hot on the heels of the ransomware attack on the oil pipeline and the slaughterhouses, another ransomware attack has been reported on infrastructure – this time steamships.

A ransomware attack on the Steamship Authority of Massachusetts hampered operations Wednesday morning.
The largest ferry service to the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, the Steamship Authority issued a statement warning that traveling customers may be delayed as a result.
A “team of IT professionals” is working to assess the impact of the cyber attack, according to the Authority.
No further information was immediately available.

As I said in my previous post: Targeted attacks on infrastructure are going to increase in volume. Rough times lay ahead.
