Shipping company Clarksons has fallen victim to a major ransomware attack that could result in the exposure of private data, the company warned today.

The statement continued:"Our initial investigations have shown the unauthorised access was gained via a single and isolated user account which has now been disabled."

Clarksonsconfirmed the attack in a statement to the London Stock Exchange this morning. It claimsthat the attacker stole some of the company's more sensitive data and threatened to release it unless the company paid a ransom.
