Colonial Pipeline pays hackers $4M-$5M to get pipeline back online: report
Colonial Pipeline supplies almost half of the East Coast's gasoline

Colonial Pipeline Co. likely paid more than $4 million to hackers in order to get its pipeline back up and running.

"The payments have been made to the terrorists," billionaire John Catsimatidis, told FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning. "I understand from my sources that $4 million was paid."

A restarting of the pipeline will in the next few days help restore the flow of gasoline across the Eastern part of the U.S where fuel shortages are abundant. The 5,500-mile Colonial Pipeline, which transports more than 100 million gallons of fuel per day, or almost half of the East Coast's supply, was taken offline on Friday by a Russian hacking group called DarkSide that demanded $100 million ransom.

About 68% of gas stations in North Carolina reported fuel outages, according to Gas Buddy. Roughly half of the gas stations in Georgia, South Carolina, Washington, D.C., and Virginia also reported outages.

Catsimatidis added that the pipeline "will be flowing by Monday at the latest."


Bloomberg News reported later Thursday, citing two people familiar with the transaction, that Colonial paid the hackers nearly $5 million.

Once the payment was made, in untraceable cryptocurrency, the hackers gave the pipeline operator a decrypting tool to restore the network, according to the Bloomberg report.

Colonial Pipeline declined to comment when contacted by FOX Business. A Department of Energy spokesperson referred FOX Business to Colonial Pipeline.

I suspect that Dementia Joe is behind this payment. He is lurching from self caused crisis to self-caused crisis and is looking like the enffeble moron that he is. But one thing you cannot get away with with Americans is to take away their gas. Somewhere in his damaged mind, he understood that. I am guessing that the Biden administration, as opposed to Colonial, paid the $5 million.

It's a private company.

Are you really saying the federal government should take control of the corporate cyber world?

Private profits, public debt. Just another case of corporate welfare.

You are saying the federal government should dictate directions to private corporations?

You can't have it both ways you fucking moron.

Nope I'm saying the government should REQUIRE any company that supplies a vast amount of public consumable energy to show PROOF that it is thoroughly protecting itself from being hacked!

It's called REGULATION......

YOU FUCKING MORON!

They want private entities to regulate themselves but also not be liable for their mistakes. Then they say the government should have been regulating if something hits them personally. Kind of like wanting to shut down the EPA until Lake Okeechobee is one big fetid cyanobacteria bloom or a phosphate gyp stack fails in some spectacular fashion. Then they want to know where was the government. So we have them here wanting in bold font for the government to regulate an industry to protect a commodity. I wonder if they would support the massive fines that would be needed to make the regulation enforceable of the taxes that would need to be collected to fund the enforcement agency. Shouldn't market forces give the oil company sufficient incentive to regulate itself.

They are against regulation until they are for it. You can't ever get any kind of consistency from these MAGATs.
