Kate Drankoff 05/25/2021

The country’s largest fuel pipeline was breached resulting in shutting down operations for multiple days. An estimated 100 gigabytes of data were stolen which was used for ransomware. The total effect has yet to be calculated but a surge in gasoline price was in effect in the eastern seaboard after operations were shut down. The FBI confirmed that a threat actor group in Russia identified as Darkside was behind the ransomware.
