An apparent cyberattack affected gas stations across Iran today.

The chairman of the Iranian parliament’s energy commission, Fereidoon Hassanvand, said there was a “targeted operation” against gas stations beginning at noon local time. The cyberattack specifically affected the government’s system for regulating fuel subsidies. Hassanvand said that the problem was corrected at many gas stations later in the day, the semi-official Tasnim News Agency reported.
