FALMOUTH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Steamship Authority General Manager Robert Davis said Tuesday that the Authority “did not pay a ransom or engage with cybercriminals,” following a ransomware attack earlier this month.

The attack on June 2 caused ferry delays and made it so travelers could not make or change reservations on the Authority’s website.

However, Davis said most of its “key customer functions have been fully and safely restored.”

“Reservations can be made or changed on our website, via phone or at a terminal and credit cards may now be used at all locations,” Davis said.

New safeguards have since been implemented. Davis stressed that “at no time, was the safety of our vessels affected.”

The investigation into the attack is currently ongoing.
