A large international currency exchange company confirmed that it was attacked by malware on December 31 and suspended some services. It is reported that the London-based company operates more than 1,500 stores worldwide. The company said that in order to protect the data and prevent the further spread of malware, they take the system offline as a precaution.
Currently, the company’s UK website is offline, and users will see a “server error” prompt when they log in. The company website states that they are offline during the upgrade process.
