Cyber-attack strikes German fuel supplies

Joe Tidy reports:

A major fuel supplier in Germany is operating at a “limited capacity” after a cyber-attack disrupted IT systems at the weekend.

Oiltanking Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG stores and transports oil, vehicle fuels and other petroleum products for companies like Shell.

It says it discovered it had been hacked on Saturday.

It has declared “force majeure” for the majority of its inland supply activities in Germany.

There is some reporting that the BlackCat group may be responsible for the Oiltanking incident.
