Romanian Gas Stations Affected by Suspected Ransomware Attack.
Rompetrol, a Romanian gas station chain and part of KMG International, has confirmed it was subject to a “complex cyber-attack”. The company suspended operations of its website and its Fill&Go service at its gas stations. Operations at the gas stations remain normal with payment accepted by either cash or card. The company noted that the activity at Petromidia refinery, the largest oil refinery in Europe and operated by Rompetrol, has not been affected.
Romania’s National Cyber Security Directorate (DNSC) had been notified on 7 March by Rompetrol of the complex cyber-attack. As of 9 March, the Rompetrol.ro website remains unreachable.
