The Iranian Oil Ministry spokesman says a cyber attack targeting the country’s petroleum ministry and the National Iranian Oil Company has failed to affect any key data.


“The cyber attack has not damaged the main data of the Oil Ministry and the National Iranian Oil Company since public servers are separate from the main ones, and they even have different [network] wirings and do not connect to the Internet,” Ali-Reza Nikzad told Fars news agency on Monday.

According to the official, only public data has been damaged in the attack that was in the form of a virus malware that burned down motherboards and cleaned data.

Nikzad said that all the primary and secondary data were backed up and there is no concern regarding the issue.
