The worlds largest digital newspaper and magazine distributor has been hit with a cyberattack, leaving users without access to more than 7000 publications.

PressReader is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, but has offices in both Dublin, Ireland and Manila, Philippines. The organisation began experiencing network outages on Thursday, affecting its Branded Editions website and apps, alongside the PressReader site.

PressReader’s local, regional and international newspapers and magazines online, on mobile devices and in print have all been affected by the outage.

The company’s security teams classified the outage as a “a cybersecurity incident” by last Friday night.
