The business process outsourcer – which generated $20.75 billion in sales in 2019 -- announced that it was hit by ransomware on July 5, in an attack that came through its U.K.-based subsidiary Xchanging, a managed service provider to insurance customers.

The attack took out multiple customers, however the company said it did not appear to have lost any information as a result. DXC declined to say what strain of ransomware infected its systems.

“The company has implemented a series of containment and remediation measures to resolve this situation,” the Tyson, Va.-based company said in a statement. “DXC is actively working with affected customers to restore access to their operating environment as quickly as possible. DXC is also engaging with law enforcement and appropriate cyber agencies.”
