(Reuters) -Colonial Pipeline’s corporate website was back online on Tuesday after a temporary service disruption unrelated to the ransomware cyberattack against the U.S. energy company, it said on Twitter.
The website started experiencing interruptions by Monday night and then went down for more than 10 hours as the operator of the largest fuel pipeline in the United States deals with a cybersecurity attack that shut its entire network on Friday.
The Alpharetta, Georgia-based company said it was continuing to make progress on its system restart plan.
Colonial’s 5,500-mile (8,850-km) pipeline network carries nearly half the fuel consumed along the U.S. East Coast. It has restarted some smaller lines.
