Wall Street is bracing for a new wave of disruptions as companies scramble to upgrade routers and equipment, in the aftermath of the attack on the internet.
Tech companies have been scrambling to repair and update their routers and other hardware, in what some analysts and customers say could be the most widespread disruption of the cyberattack.
The new infrastructure is critical to the operation of the internet, but some companies are still struggling to fix the damage caused by the breach.
Here’s what you need to know.
What is the breach?
The breach affected more than 150 million computers, including some in the United States, including at some of the world’s largest tech companies.
The attack is believed to have been carried out by a group of cybercriminals who stole the data of millions of accounts.
The group also used tools to install malware on some of those computers, according to The New York Times.
What does the breach mean for my personal information?
As a precaution, some users should change their passwords and reset their antivirus software, said the Times.
This is because the attack has also compromised other companies’ systems.
Companies that are part of the government are also taking extra steps to secure their networks.
Some agencies are asking for help from outside contractors to upgrade their systems.
What did the breach do?
A company called Trend Micro said in a statement that it has detected the intrusion, which is the first breach to target the security of the company’s routers and Internet servers.
In a blog post, Trend said that it had discovered that a “minority of Trend Micro’s customers had recently been compromised by a malicious actor.”
The company said it has begun to investigate the incident and is working with its customers to help mitigate the impact of the breach, the Associated Press reported.
