Cyber Attack Leads to Twenty-Four Million Dollar Loss

Norsk Hydro, a Norwegian aluminum company that employs over 30,000 people, has been hit by malware just last week. They said they are slowly bringing affected systems back online, but this incident will still cost the company about 300 million Norwegian Kroners, or twenty-four million US Dollars in damages. Most of those misfortunes had been in its Extruded Solutions division, which makes aluminum veneers.

Production in this section was down 20-30%. One of the machines, which makes doors and windows, was completely stopped. Machines that were normally an automated process were now being ran manually by the workers at some locations.
