South Africa’s Transnet says it will lift its force majeure declaration from tomorrow. The company was forced to implement emergency measures after its IT systems were compromised by a ransomware attack on July 22nd.

Port operations across the country are now recovering after having switched to manual operations.

“Transnet believes it is now in a position to service its customers and meet all contractual obligations reliably,” the company wrote in its statement. The impacted ports included Durban, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, and Ngqura.

Bloomberg reported that the ransomware attack was the well-known “Death Kitty” or “Hello Kitty” that has been linked to other high-profile attacks.
