Saudi Aramco oil firm claims to be over cyber attack
International oil company Saudi Aramco claims to be over a cyber attack on 15 August and maintains that oil production was not disrupted.
The company said around 30,000 workstation computers that were hit by a virus attack are back online, although remote access is still being restricted “as a precaution”.
Saudi Aramco has also not yet restored its website, displaying a message apologising for any inconvenience instead. "We have isolated all our electronic systems from outside access as an early precautionary measure that was taken following a sudden disruption which affected some sectors of our network," the message reads. “Most of the damage has now been repaired."
