An investigation into the separate recent collisions between two Navy warships from the Seventh Fleet and commercial vessels has so far shown no evidence of cyberattacks, according to Admiral John Richardson, chief of naval operations. Richardson said that “to date, the inspections we’ve done show that there’s no evidence of any kind of a cyberintrusion.” The admiral said it has become “sort of a reality of our current situation that part of any kind of investigation or inspection is going to have to take a look at the computer, the cyber — you know, the informational warfare aspect — of our business".
Twenty crew were saved on Sunday after their cargo ship sank off the coast of Oman. Authorities in Oman said that the ship was loaded with construction material, consisting of steel bars and sand. Police and Oman’s Transportation and Communications Ministry said that the boat sank off the coast of Lakabi, a town some 620 kilometers (385 miles) southwest of the sultanate’s capital, Muscat. The ministry in a statement carried by the state-run Oman News Agency said seawater poured into the ship through a leak, sinking it. A nearby fisherman saved the seafarers.
