INCIDENT: Malta Oil Terminal, run by Evos, One of Several European Facilities Hit by a Cyberattack

"Evos said it had suffered delays at its terminals in Terneuzen in the Netherlands, Ghent in Belgium and Malta." The company admitted to having several port terminals hit in multiple countries simultaneously: Terneuzen in The Netherlands; Ghent in Belgium and Birzebbuga in Malta. They only admitted to delays, not a complete shutdown. The Malta facility was acquired from Oiltanking last year, and could be subject to similar vulnerabilities.

Oiltanking Deutschland and Mabanaft, two German oil companies, were also hit by cyberattacks. Unconfirmed reports suggest that BlackCat ransomware may have compromised systems at these recent attacks.
