Italian oil services company Saipem has said that its IT infrastructure in the Middle East has been targeted hackers.

The company told Bloomberg that it has taken servers offline while it tries to assess the impact of an apparent cyber attack.

Hackers had apparently attempted to extract data from company servers, primarily in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Attacks were also seen against servers in Kuwait and the UK.

The hacks apparently originated in Chennai, India, but no further details have been revealed.
