Saipem Middle East servers affected by cyber-attack

(MENAFN) Servers of Saipem in the Middle East have been hit with a cyber-attack, which was found to have been launched from India.

The source of the cyber-attack and the people responsible for it are yet to be unknown, confirmed a spokesperson for the Italian oil services firm.

The attack attracted a remark from Phil Neray, Vice President of Industrial Cybersecurity at CyberX.

Neray said: "it's still too early to tell, but given Saipem's position as a trusted third party supplier to Saudi Aramco, an educated guess would be that the adversary is the same one that attacked Saudi Aramco in the past - which points to the destructive Shamoon attacks of 2012 and 2016, now widely-attributed to Iran."
