ZURICH (Reuters) - Food group Mondelez International MDLZ.O said employees in different regions were experiencing technical problems but it was unclear whether this was due to a cyberattack.

“I can confirm that our employees are experiencing difficulties in various geographies. We are investigating the issue,” spokeswoman Heidi Hauer said on Tuesday.

Companies including shipping group A.P. Moller-Maersk MAERSKb.CO and Russian oil producer Rosneft ROSN.MM said their systems had been hit by a cyberattack on Tuesday.
