Colonial Pipeline Reopens After Ransomware Attack | Avast

The largest petroleum transport company in the United States, Colonial Pipeline, has resumed business as usual this week after halting all pipeline operations last Friday when the company was hit by a ransomware attack. Attackers attempted a double extortion scheme by locking the company out of its files and then threatening to publish 100 gigabytes of sensitive Colonial Pipeline data if the company didn’t pay.
