Cyberextortionists Steal Data from Greece’s Gas System Operator

ATHENS – A notorious gang of cyber ransomware users said it was behind an electronic attack on Greece’s National Gas System Operator (DEFSA) the agency said likely led to data and information being lost.

The group, Ragnar Locker, put a boast on the Dark Web it had conducted the attack, the FBI saying the extortionists have done it to at least 52 organizations and companies running critical infrastructure in the United States.

DESFA announced that it had suffered a cyber-attack on part of its IT infrastructure, which resulted in a “confirmed impact on the availability of certain systems and the possible leakage of a number of files and data,” said Kathimerini.

The statement said that IT services were deactivated to limit any potential spillage and to investigate the incident and keep the system supplying gas without any interruptions having occurred.
