The Italian oil giant Eni SpA said Wednesday that its computer networks were hacked in recent days and that the consequences so far appeared to be minor. 

“Eni confirms that the internal protection systems have detected unauthorized access to the company network in recent days,” a company representative said, in response to a query from Bloomberg News. The country’s largest energy company is working with local authorities to assess the consequences of the attack, the representative added.
