Luxembourg energy companies struggling with alleged ransomware attack, data breach

Jonathan Greig reports:

Two companies based in Luxembourg are grappling with an alleged ransomware attack that began last week, the latest in a string of incidents involving European energy companies.

Encevo Group said its Luxembourg entities Creos – an energy network operator – and the supplier Enovos were “victims of a cyberattack on the night of July 22.”

The company said the attack took down customer portals for both companies but did not affect the supply of electricity and gas.

In earlier responding to reports of the attack, Twitter user @z0man, a security professional in Germany involved in the security of industrial systems, reminded everyone of the value of segmentation in protecting critical systems:

“BlackCat hit Creos (pipeline) and some weeks ago German Count+Care, a service company of electricity company #Entega. In both cases (Creos and Entega) the segmentation of critical services worked quite well!”
