Mexico's Pemex unaffected following cyberattack - security minister

MEXICO CITY, Nov 14 (Reuters) - A cyberattack against computer networks belonging to Mexican national oil company Pemex is “totally under control” and did not cause any negative consequences, Security Minister Alfonso Durazo told reporters on Thursday.

The attack was first detected on Sunday and over several days since then halted some administration work, including the processing of payments, but Pemex said its oil and gas operations were not harmed.

The company formally known as Petroleos Mexicanos has said it would not pay a ransom demanded by the suspected cyberattackers. (Reporting by Daina Beth Solomon; Editing by David Alire Garcia)
