TNT Express warns of permanent data loss from WannaCry and NotPetya malware outbreaks

Graeme Burton reports:

Courier company TNT Express has warned that it is still being affected by the NotPetya malware almost a month after it struck, and “cannot estimate when TNT services will be fully restored”, according to a statement released by the company this week.

Furthermore, the company added that it may not be able to undo the damage and that it may have suffered permanent data loss.

“TNT operates in Ukraine and uses the software that was compromised, which allowed the virus to infiltrate TNT systems and encrypt its data. While TNT operations and communications were significantly affected, no data breach or data loss to third parties is known to have occurred,” the company admitted in the statement.
