Infosys’ network brought down by virus attack

Infosys Technologies Ltd., a leading Bangalore-based software and business process outsourcing (BPO) company, had to bring down its network Tuesday morning, following detection of a virus attack on some machines on the network.

“We don’t have the details of the virus yet, though we think it came through as an e-mail attachment,” said a spokeswoman for the company who added that this is not the first time that Infosys has been attacked by a virus, and the network shut down.

“We proactively shut off a part of our network for a couple of hours as part of our business continuity plan,” said the spokeswoman. While the network-dependent work was affected, other software development and services work continued as usual, she added.
