Following the recovery of the website on Monday morning, Tariqul Islam Khan, manager of the public relations wing at Petrobangla, claimed all the information on the website was unaffected.

During Sunday’s hacking incident, the hackers wrote on the website: “Your All Data Are Safe”.

Earlier, the Petrobangla website was hacked soon after the Rohingya influx started on August 25, 2017, and also on December 19, 2015.

The state-run corporation has 12 subordinate companies running upstream and downstream energy businesses.
