Vietnam’s state oil distribution firm PetroVietnam Oil Corp (PV Oil) reported that its information technology system was deliberately and illegally targeted with ransomware on Tuesday.

Plans are underway to rectify the issue within the next two days, the firm stated.

The cyberattack occurred at midnight on Tuesday, disrupting the information technology system of PV Oil, which operates over 780 petrol stations nationwide, including its electronic invoice issuance system. 

Consequently, electronic invoicing for PV Oil’s sales has been temporarily suspended. 

The strike also rendered its email and business portal systems inoperative.

PV Oil has reported the incident to authorities and is actively working to resolve it swiftly.

To ensure gasoline supply, PV Oil and its member units continue selling to customers, despite being unable to issue electronic invoices as mandated by the Law on Tax Administration. 

In addition, the company is utilizing alternative notes instead of warehouse delivery notes to ensure that goods transported on the road contain all necessary information.

PV Oil intends to resume issuing electronic invoices and warehouse delivery notes in compliance with regulations once the system is restored. 

The firm’s operations now continue via manual recording.
