Four US pipeline operators have reported disruption of electronic data interchange (EDI) systems: Oneok, Energy Transfer Partners, Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, and Chesapeake Utilities' Eastern Shore Natural Gas were all affected. Energy Transfer Partners and Eastern Shore identified the issue as a third-party problem with service provider Latitude Technologies, a unit of Energy Services Group. Latitude Technologies has restored most of the affected services, but it's waiting until investigation is farther along before offering an account of how the hackers got in.
The attackers hit the EDI Latitude provides, not the operators' operational technology (OT). Some speculate the hackers' intention was to pivot from the IT to the OT, but there's no public evidence yet that this occurred.
