Declaring a state of emergency due to a cyber attack on the largest pipeline in the United States


The US government declared a state of emergency on Sunday after the largest fuel pipeline in the United States came under a cyberattack by the ransomware virus.

The Colonial pipeline transports 2.5 million barrels per day, or 45% of the East Coast’s supply of diesel, gasoline and jet fuel.

An online gang shut down completely on Friday, and work is still underway to restore the service.

The state of emergency allows the transportation of fuel by road.
