  1. Hi Pravin,
    I’m writing with reference to your article https://thecyberthrone.in/2021/11/27/swire-pacific-offshore-suffers-ransomware-attack/#respond

    There are some serious errors that need to be corrected and removed. I believe you have used the info from Tech to See or Bleeping computer who had erroneous reporting.

    1. Marine Services Giant – We only have a fleet of 50 vessels, we are not a giant.Please change it Marine Services Provider.
    2. All the facts in this sentence is wrong Please remove this line.
    Swire Pacific Offshore is the world’s largest supplier of specialist offshore cargo carrying units and offers ship management, offshore support, and liner shipping services with presence in over 400 ports globally and operates a fleet of over 200 vessels, reporting yearly revenues of over $10 billion.
    Here is an alternative line,
    SPO is a marine services provider with 50 offshore support vessels.

    Would greatly appreciate your prompt actions to recify these errors.

    Thank you
