BERLIN – Federal prosecutors are investigating a cyber attack on a subsidiary of German energy firm EnBW (EBKG.DE) by unknown hackers last summer, the prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday.

The Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reported on Tuesday that hackers had breached the networks of NetCom BW last summer, but did not gain access to the computer system it uses to control energy supplies. The hack was not publicly disclosed at the time.

Germany’s BSI federal cyber agency on Wednesday said it had assessed the incident and that there was no evidence to suggest that the company’s operations had been affected.
