[Slashdot] - Colonial Announces Pipeline Restart After Being Shut Down For Five Days Due To Cyberattack

Recommended Posts

Colonial Pipeline, operator of the largest U.S. fuel pipeline, said Wednesday it is restarting operations after being shut down for five days due to a cyberattack. NBC News reports: The company shut down its entire operation Friday after its financial computer networks were infected by a Russia-tied hacker gang known as DarkSide, fearing that the hackers could spread to its industrial operations as well. The shutdown led to widespread gasoline shortages and caused temporary price spikes. "Colonial Pipeline initiated the restart of pipeline operations today at approximately 5 p.m. ET," the company said in a statement on its website. "Following this restart, it will take several days for the product delivery supply chain to return to normal."
