VIENNA (Reuters) - Austrian construction company Porr detected a cyber attack on its communication infrastructure on Thursday and its telephone lines and emails were disrupted, the company said.

The disruption was caused by a virus, which has been identified, a company spokeswoman said.

Technicians were working to find a solution, but the spokeswoman said it was too early to estimate potential damage.

Company data is not at risk, Porr said in a statement.
