First American, a real estate and mortgage financial firm, experienced a “cybersecurity incident” impacting operations, the company posted on its website on Thursday. The company has not released any details about what happened, but as of the time of publication, its website remained down.

“First American has experienced a cybersecurity incident,” says a statement on its website. “In response, we have taken certain systems offline and are working to return to normal business operations as soon as possible.” First American did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In 2019, First American came under fire for its handling of sensitive information. It paid a $1 million fine to the New York State Department of Financial Services after a vulnerability in its proprietary “EaglePro” application left data like social security numbers and bank information exposed.
