    "Norsk Hydro sees higher cost of cyber attack as second quarter lags

    OSLO (Reuters) - Norsk Hydro, one of the world’s largest aluminum producers, said a cyber attack it sustained in March would cost it more than expected in the second quarter as it reported quarterly earnings that slightly lagged forecasts on Tuesday.

    The cyber attack is now expected to cost 250-300 million crowns in the second quarter, compared with an earlier view that it would cost some 200-250 million crowns in that period.."
