Gas Stations Start to Run Dry in Southeast U.S. Because of Pipeline Ransomware Shutdown

The Colonial pipeline shut down because of a ransomware attack is starting to wreak havoc in the southeast where gas station owners have fewer alternative sources for gasoline.

From South Carolina:

Colonial Pipeline Co. Chief Executive Officer Joseph Blount warned state officials in a private meeting Monday that supply shortages could occur even as it plans to reopen the line later this week, reports Bloomberg.

Blount said the company was in the process of developing an extensive restart plan, but wouldn’t resume shipments until the ransomware had been removed.
