Iranian Officials Hold Emergency Meeting After Cyberattacks Target Gas Stations

Earlier in the day, reports suggested that gas stations across the Islamic Republic had malfunctioned, while the hacked systems allegedly displayed the question "where is the gas", addressing the Iranian Supreme Leader.

Iranian state TV said that Oil Ministry officials were convening an "emergency meeting" to solve the technical issues amid cyberattacks, targeting gas stations.

"The Supreme National Security Council confirmed that there has been a cyberattack against the petrol distribution computer system", the television station IRIB said. "Technical experts are fixing the problem and soon the refuelling process... will return to normal".

The disruptions occurred nearly two years after widespread protests hit the country due to a major increase in fuel prices.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.
