This means that Travelex has now restored all of its customer-facing systems.

Travelex, whose services have been heavily affected by a cyber incident which was first detected on December 31, 2019, continues to restore its operations.

The latest update published on Travelex’s Customer Hub states that the company has managed to recover its customer-facing websites in Asia. The company says:

“We are pleased to announce that in addition to the UK, Europe, North America, Middle East & Turkey, Australia & New Zealand, we have now recovered our customer-facing websites in Asia. This means that we have now restored all of our customer-facing systems”.

In mid-February, Travelex said it recovered its customer facing websites in Europe, North America, Middle East & Turkey, Australia & New Zealand. This means that customers can now order travel money cash for store collection or for home delivery.

Travelex also announced that it restored sales and reloads of Travelex Money Card through its websites in UK, US and France, as well as the recovering the Travelex Money App in the UK, US and France.

As FinanceFeeds reported, on January 30, 2020, Travelex said it recovered its customer facing website in the UK. Several days prior to that, Travelex Wire resumed operations.

Travelex has been implementing a phased approach to the global restoration of its systems. Throughout recovery, the company said, its priority is to ensure that its systems are brought back up in a controlled, secure and managed way.

On Tuesday, December 31, 2019, the company detected a malware. Upon discovery, the crisis management team immediately began an investigation and, as a precautionary measure, took all Travelex’s systems offline to prevent the spread of the malware further across our network.

In January, the company confirmed that the software virus affecting its systems is ransomware known as Sodinokibi, also commonly referred to as Revil. Travelex says that whereas there has been some data encryption, there is no evidence that structured personal customer data has been encrypted.

Although Travelex does not yet have a complete picture of all the data that has been encrypted, there is still no evidence to date that any data has been exfiltrated.
