Freight giant Toll Group has shut down “a number” of IT systems due to a “cyber security incident”, with customers reporting shipment tracking is down and drivers are reverting to manual receipts.

Toll Group says it has been hit with a “new variant” of ransomware known as Mailto or Kokoklock, and that samples have been provided to the Australian Cyber Security Centre and other researchers.

The ransomware is believed to have infected as many as 1000 servers, including Active Directory.
