As experienced by users, and confirmed by the service, Travelex services went down following the malware attack. The exchange clearly defined the incident as a ‘malware’ attack. Sharing their statement in a tweet, Travelex mentioned,

Travelex confirms that a software virus was discovered on New Year’s Eve which has compromised some of its services.

They also confirmed the shut down of their services, which they did as a precaution.

 

As a precautionary measure in order to protect data and prevent the spread of the virus, we immediately took all our systems offline.
