Russian hackers through the agency of Russian Special Service vandalized 
servers of energy pipe, carrying gas from Azerbaijan to Europe bypassing 
Russia, 1news.az and Aviation Week report. According to the publication, 
Russian hackers are long attacking Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline 
data server.

Hacker attacks caused suspension in BTC operations, forcing Eastern Oil 
Consortium to redirect the oil through Baku-Novorossiysk Russian 
pipeline. “After U.S. experts restored the BTC server, the pipeline 
operation was recovered,” Aviation Week informs.

The paper says attacks had the same IPs as those of Estonian websites 
swamp during 2007 Estonian Cyberwar. The source stresses that cyber 
crime officers of the Intelligence Service and FBI got BTC data servers 
under control and migrated them to Washington.
