Duie Pyle reassured that their OS, backups, and brokerage service systems were not affected, and no data was extracted. The company is still working on restoring their communication systems but were able to get their voicemail system up and running by the next day. A portion of the breach notification read, “We have reactivated our API pickup request and shipment tracking connectivity, but we are controlling, at a customer level, the volume of API transaction requests for certain high demand users.
