Cosmetics giant Avon is recovering from a mysterious cyber-security incident that took place last week, on June 8, sources have told ZDNet.
The company has filed documents with the US Securities Exchange Commission disclosing the incident on June 9, a day after the company first discovered issues with some of its IT infrastructure.
The company said the incident “interrupted some systems and partially affected operations.”
Last week, Avon distributors reported problems accessing the company’s backend, where they usually file new product orders.
Issues with accessing the Avon backend have been reported in the UK, Argentina, Brazil, Poland, and Romania.
