Is Rand McNally just routinely “upgrading systems” or are they dealing with an attack?

A notice on their web site says that Rand McNally is upgrading their systems:

Notice on Rand McNally site says they are upgrading systems.

Oh really?  Why didn’t their site just admit what they wrote in email:

“Dear Valued Customer,

Rand McNally recently discovered a disruption to certain portions of our computer network. We commenced an immediate investigation that included taking certain systems offline and working with computer forensic specialists to determine the nature and scope of the event. We are working diligently to restore the functionality of our systems. We appreciate your patience and understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you,
Rand McNally “

Sounds like a ransomware attack, doesn’t it?  There’s no contact info left up on Rand McNally’s site at this point, but will be watching for further developments.

Thanks to the regular reader who alerted this site to this incident.
