US passes emergency waiver over fuel pipeline cyber-attack - BBC News

The US government issued emergency legislation on Sunday after the largest fuel pipeline in the US was hit by a ransomware cyber-attack.
The Colonial Pipeline carries 2.5 million barrels a day – 45% of the East Coast’s supply of diesel, gasoline and jet fuel.
It was completely knocked offline by a cyber-criminal gang on Friday and work to restore service is continuing.
The emergency status relaxes rules on fuel being transported by road.
