There are no adverse effects on oil production following a cyber attack on the computer network at the Saudi Arabian Oil Co., the company said.
A computer virus entered the company’s network through personal computers but the situation was secured and oil production wasn’t disrupted because of the attack.
The company, known also as Saudi Aramco, said in a statement to Bloomberg News that the infected systems were isolated.
“The network that runs the company’s major operations is safe and there are no effects whatsoever on production operations,” the statement said. – UPI
