In an incident that impacted its operational technology systems, major German independent oil and gas storage company Oiltanking confirmed that it had been the victim of an attack on its IT systems and admitted that it had hit its inland supply with terminals operating with limited capacity. Its sister company, oil trading firm Mabanaft, was also hit in the incident on Saturday, January 29.
According to German press reports, the attacks shut down all of Oiltanking’s loading and unloading operations, bringing the firm’s business to a standstill. Oiltanking and its parent company, Mabanaft Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG, are operating with limited capacity and have declared force majeure. The nature of the attack is currently unclear, although speculation runs to a ransomware incident. (The Stack)
