DDoS attack at Israel’s Largest Oil Refinery

September 29, 2023


The website of Israel’s largest oil refinery operator, BAZAN Group, became inaccessible to most parts of the world on Sunday due to a potential cyber attack. The website remained accessible from within Israel, possibly after imposition of a geo-block by BAZAN in an attempt to thwart an ongoing cyber attack. In a Telegram channel, Iranian hacktivist group Cyber Avengers has claimed responsibility and leaked what appear to be screenshots of BAZAN’s SCADA systems. The group states that it breached the petrochemicals giant via an exploit targeting a Check Point firewall at the company.

In a statement to BleepingComputer, a spokesperson for BAZAN has dismissed the leaked materials as "entirely fabricated." An Iranian hacktivist group called Cyber Avengers, also known as CyberAv3ngers, claim to have compromised BAZAN Group
