Official: Iran Oil Industry Safe After Cyberattack

Iran announced on Monday it was forced to disconnect the country’s main oil export terminal from the Internet as a preventive measure after a cyberattack.

An Iranian official says the country’s oil industry is working well despite an attack from hackers and a computer virus that targeted the sector’s computer systems.

Deputy minister for oil and civil defense Hamdollah Mohammadnejad says all field units and exports of crude have continued working without interruptions. His remarks were reported Tuesday by state IRNA news agency.
