Duh
Two words: Backups. ERP

Worst case scenario should have been losing data since previous nights backup. Sounds like they were using MS Word and Quickbooks to run the business. What a joke.

Re: Duh
Actually, Saudi Aramco run the largest SAP installation in the world.  Did you really think that exploring, extracting, processing and shipping 10% of oil supplies could be managed with toys like Excel?

Is there a white paper / analysis of the attack?  I would like to read a lessons learned.  We had an attack a few years ago, that took advantage of the fact that IT Techs had computer/domain admin access.  Once it infected the admins, game over.  It used that access to spread to the rest of the network. We were off the internet for a few days.
