Russian hackers vandalized BTC Pipeline data servers

According to Aviation Week, Russian hackers have been attacking the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) Pipeline data server.
Hacker attacks have caused suspensions in BTC operations, forcing the Eastern Oil Consortium to redirect the oil through the Baku-Novorossiysk Russian pipeline. “After U.S. experts restored the BTC server, the pipeline operation was recovered,” Aviation Week says.
The publication said the attacks had the same IPs as those of Estonian websites swamped during the 2007 Estonian Cyberwar. The source stressed that cyber crime officers of the Intelligence Service and FBI got BTC data servers under control and migrated them to Washington.
