The foreign currency specialist Travelex has been forced to take its websites offline following a cyber-attack. The group said it immediately took down its online systems to protect data and prevent the software virus spreading after discovering the attack on New Year’s Eve. It added that its investigations so far suggested no personal or customer data had been compromised. The incident comes just as many people are preparing to head off for an early new-year getaway. Some observers pointed out on Twitter that, prior to news of the virus emerging, Travelex had posted messages on some of its websites claiming the reason services were unavailable was “due to planned maintenance”.
