The hackers who paralyzed the operation of the Colonial Pipeline stole a large amount of data, Bloomberg News reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

The attackers, who are part of a cybercrime group called DarkSide, reportedly stole 100GB of data in just two hours on Thursday (May 6th).

The massive cyber attack forced the Colonial Pipeline to shut down. The top pipeline network provides nearly half of the U.S. east coast fuel supply.

The company transports 2.5 million barrels of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other refined products daily over 8,850 km of pipelines connecting refineries on the Gulf Coast with the eastern and southern United States.

The cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline involved ransomware.
