Online furniture store shuts down
A popular online furniture store has closed down after a virus infected customers.
The online furniture retailer Crystal Store shut down in September after being infected with ransomware.
It was reopened last month.
It’s not clear why Crystal closed down.
However, the website offers a new, cleaner shopping experience, with a selection of furniture and other items that are not listed on the store’s website.
The store’s customers had been receiving notifications about an unknown virus that was infecting their computers, but they did not receive a notification when the virus became effective.
“We do not believe there is any malicious intent on the part of the perpetrators, and we would not be commenting on specific incidents,” the company told Al Jazeera.
The firm has said it is working with local law enforcement and has offered to help customers who had been infected.
