There is no reason to believe that any confidential information or investor data has been compromised, CDSL says.
Central Depository Services (India) Ltd. disconnected itself from other constituents of the capital market after detecting malware in a few of its internal machines on Friday.
The affected machines were isolated, the depository said in a statement, adding that "there is no reason to believe that any confidential information or investor data has been compromised".
"The CDSL team has reported the incident to the relevant authorities and is working with its cyber security advisors to analyse the impact," the statement read.
"Resolution of the incident is in process, subsequent to which settlement activities would be completed," it added.
