Petrol stations in Iran are gradually returning to normal after a cyber attack disrupted the smart card system used to buy subsidized fuel at pumps. The secretary of Iran's Supreme Council of Cyberspace says experts investigating the incident have come across signs of a cyber attack. Abolhassan Firouzabadi noted the attack was probably carried out by a foreign country with the aim of disrupting public services. Earlier, Iranian oil ministry officials reported a gradual return of fuel stations to full functionality. They also stated that nearly 50 percent of the country’s petrol stations were already selling fuel at un-subsidized rates through cash payments despite the incident.
