Mexico’s state-owned oil company, Pemex, has suffered a ransomware attack that demanded $4.9 million. According to Bloomberg, the attack is disrupting the company’s billing systems; Pemex is relying on manual billing that could affect payment of personnel and suppliers and hinder supply chain operations. Invoices for fuel to be delivered from Pemex’s storage terminals to gasoline stations were being done manually on Tuesday.
