Kuwait’s PIC comes under cyber-attack

Petrochemical Industries Co (PIC), a subsidiary of the state-run Kuwait Petroleum Corp (KPC), has said it had managed to locate the source of 167 cyber-attacks and break-in attempts on its local and global networks, Kuna has reported. Most of the 100,000 attacks during the June 19-22 period were aimed at exhausting the server, thus disrupting the services of PIC. Services, however, have not been disrupted, PIC said.
