The attack took place late Monday and an investigation into its extent is still ongoing.

“Business operations will be adversely affected for several days and it is expected that D-Box will have a longer stay depending on how quickly it can recover its data and make full use of its systems,” management said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Currently, there is no evidence to suggest that personal customer data was compromised as part of this attack,” he said.

However, some personal data of employees may be compromised.
