‘Dustman’ disk wiper attacks Bahraini oil company

Bapco, the national oil company of the Persian Gulf island nation of Bahrain, was reportedly targeted in a Dec. 29 disk wiper attack that officials believe originated from Iran-backed hackers. Iran is historically associated with past disk wiper campaigns against energy companies, most notably the destructive Shamoon or Disttrack malware attack against the Saudi Arabian Oil Company Saudi Aramco in 2012, which destroyed roughly 35,000 computer workstations.
