Saudi Arabia’s state oil giant has denied a breach of its systems, saying “the company continues to maintain a robust cybersecurity posture.”


Saudi Aramco told The Associated Press on Wednesday that it “recently became aware of the indirect release of a limited amount of company data which was held by third-party contractors.”


“We confirm that the release of data was not due to a breach of our systems, has no impact on our operations and the company continues to maintain a robust cybersecurity posture,” Aramco said.
