More cyber-attacks hit the oil and gas sector from April to September 2012 than any other industry, a report from the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) says. Assaults take two main forms: one is cyber espionage, with Chinese hackers, for example, stealing gigabytes of material such as bidding information on lease auctions in a campaign that ran from 2008-2011. The other form is disruption to critical businesses and physical operations.
