What is happening in America? The White House declares a state of emergency in Washington and 17 states


Colonial Pipeline, the largest fuel pipeline management company in the United States, has shut down its entire network after a cyber attack of a virus program aimed at paying ransoms.


The shutdown sparked fears of a rise in gasoline prices before demand reached its peak during the summer season, should it continue, and highlighted the vulnerability of the US energy infrastructure to hackers.


Although the US government investigation is still in its early stages, a former official and industry source said that the hackers are a group of highly professional cybercriminals, and suspicions revolve around a group called Darkside that may be responsible for the hack.


Oil prices rose today, Monday, due to the cyber attack, as Brent crude reached $ 68.85 a barrel, an increase of 0.8%.


In an indication of the gravity of the situation, the White House has been working closely with the hacked company to help it recover, which is responsible for transporting 2.5 million barrels per day - 45 percent of the East Coast's supply of diesel, gasoline and jet fuel, which has stopped entirely due to the accident.
