Italian contractor Saipem was hit by a cyberattack on its computer servers on Monday, the company said in a press release.

A variant of the Shamoon malware affected Saipem servers in the Middle East, India and Scotland and caused more minor disruptions in Italy.

“The attack led to the cancellation of data and infrastructures – typical effects of malware,” the note said. Saipem added that it is working to restore its servers.
