Oil India Limited’s registered headquarter at Duliajan in Assam’s Dibrugarh district is purportedly under a cyber attack which has led to the company shutting down all its computers and IT systems at the official company on April 12.
According to reports, Oil India Limited had received a demand for a ransom of Rs 75 lakh US dollars right before the company’s servers were hacked.
As per the FIR copy, the demand for ransom came from international hackers to one of the company’s computers right before the servers were hacked.
This hacking comes amid concerns about the global threat of cyber attacks on power companies. The OIL official, however, said that crude production has not been hit yet.
While OIL India has termed the cyberattack as extremely serious in nature and the situation is being closely monitored.
