Iran Oil Terminal Face Malware Attack, Internal System Also Get Affected 

The official website of Iranian oil ministry and national oil company became the victim of malware attack. The computer virus is believed to have hit the internal computer systems said BBC. Authorities sent those sites offline immediately after the attack took place. Equipment on the Kharg island and at other Iranian oil plants has also been disconnected from the net as a precaution. However the Ministry website was back in action on Monday but the oil company site has remained unreachable. The semi-official news agency, Mehr, reported that information about users of the websites had been stolen, but no sensitive data had been accessed. Iran's Revolutionary Guard claims to have created a "hack-proof" network for all sensitive data. We have yet to see a hack-proof network and if they have convinced themselves it's true, perhaps that is part of the problem. Iran is reported to have mobilised a "cyber crisis committee" to handle the aftermath of the attack and bolster defences. One thing is clear, whether you are an oppressive regime, or simply an average small business, anyone who depends upon the internet will face malware threats and hacking attempts. 
Not only oil terminal but also in 2011 Iran Nuclear program faced cyber attack from "Duqu".
