Critical infrastructure suffered ransomware attacks, with threat actors targeting an oil petrol distributor and oil terminals in major ports in different attacks.

Earlier this week, German petrol distributor Oiltanking suffered a ransomware attack allegedly by the new ALPHV/BlackCat ransomware operation.

Soon after, oil terminals in major ports disclosed that they too suffered ransomware attacks. However, officials do not believe the attacks are linked.

If critical infrastructure was not bad enough, the Conti ransomware gang attacked British snacks giant KP Snacks, causing disruptions in the supply chain.

The UK’s HHS released a summary of the findings from the attack on Ireland’s HSE and said that 80% of the IT systems were encrypted during the attack.

Finally, RecordedFuture conducted an interview with the ALPHV ransomware gang, which provides some interesting insights into their new operation.
