A ransomware attack was launched against STELCO last Thursday which has disrupted its services including the company’s website, mobile application, and outlets, and further services.
According to STELCO, it will take a while to resume its services at full scale after the attack. Moreover, they are trying to solve the issue as soon as possible.
