THE WORLD’S LARGEST OIL COMPANY Saudi Aramco has been hit by a cyber attack. The breach, believed to be spread by an Arab hacker group, isolated production systems from infected PC workstations inside the company.
However, the firm managed to shut down outside access to its computer network in a preemptive measure, it said in a statement on its Facebook page today.
“The disruption was suspected to be the result of a virus that had infected personal workstations without affecting the primary components of the network,” Aramco said.
“Saudi Aramco confirmed the integrity of all of its electronic network that manages its core business and that the interruption has had no impact whatsoever on any of the company’s production operations.” – The Inquirer
