           A Mexican based petrol provider, Pemex has reportedly been targeted in a ransomware attack. The attack Sunday, which in reports did nothing to disrupt production or fuel supply, did however affect roughly 5% of their personal computers. 

      Officials originally thought the Ryuke ransomware was to blame, but after a closer inspection they are confident it was actually the DoppelPaymer variant of ransomware. A Tor payment site was discovered, where it demanded a payment of 565 BTC, about 5 million USD. This is only the latest in a long trend of ransomware attacks targeting infrastructure, automation, and the medical sector. Norsk Hydro was hit in March, as well as the German based automation giant Pilz last month. 

      It is currently unknown as to who was behind the attack, as of the time of this report, Pemex officials have stated that all is now running smoothly.

             That was the news folks, have a good day, and stay safe out there.
