Royal Mail exports hit by ‘cyber attack’

January 11, 2023


The Royal Mail’s postal services abroad have been compromised after an alleged cyber incident, according to reports.

The organisation is suffering severe disruption to its international export services.

“We are temporarily unable to despatch items to overseas destinations,” the Royal Mail said.

“Some customers may experience delay or disruption to items already shipped for export.

“Our import operations continue to perform a full service with some minor delays.”

The Royal Mail is advising customers to temporarily hold off on trying to export mail while the problem is dealt with, using “external experts”.

The firm also apologised to its customers affected by the incident.

Import services remain operational and are experiencing minor delays.
