Several Norwegian organizations in the oil, gas and defense industries have been hit by cyber attacks.

"The Norwegian National Security Authority, the NSN, said in a press statement late yesterday that a number of industrial secrets had been stolen and sent out digitally from Norway, but [no] further information on the data thefts have been revealed," Infosecuriy reports.

"The Associated Press, meanwhile, quotes the NSN agency as saying that more than 10 different cyber attacks were discovered in the last year, but that the agency feels that the number may have been much higher because other victims might not have yet realised that their computers have been targeted," the article states.
