The NotPetya cyber attack that cost businesses like Maersk and FedEx/TNT some $1.2bn, was orchestrated by the Russian military, according to the UK and US. Experts said about 2,000 attacks were launched, primarily aimed at Ukraine – but which affected businesses with trade links in the country.

In a separate cyber issue, FedEx yesterday said it had managed to secure customer identification records which had been visible on an unsecured server. It said it had no evidence to suggest the data was misused, but the Amazon server had stored 119,000 scanned documents, of personal customer information.
