Petro-Canada gas stations across Canada are impacted by technical problems preventing customers from paying with credit card or rewards points as its parent company, Suncor Energy, discloses they suffered a cyberattack.
Suncor Energy is the 48th-largest public company in the world, and one of Canada’s largest synthetic crude producers, having an annual revenue of $31 billion.
Petro-Canada, a subsidiary of Suncor that operates over 1,500 gas stations across Canada, also announced that it’s facing problems.
This outage also prevents earning points when refueling at the company’s gas stations.
BleepingComputer has contacted both Suncor Energy and Petro-Canada to request more information about the cybersecurity incident and the reported service outages, and we will update this post as soon as we hear back from either.
