FuboTV was hit by a cyber attack Wednesday during a World Cup semifinal match, but service was restored quickly and there’s no evidence of further disruption.

In a statement released Thursday, the live TV streaming service noted that on December 14, the day France faced off against Morocco during FIFA’s Qatar 2022 World Cup, many customers had trouble accessing their accounts.

“The incident was not related to any bandwidth constraints on Fubo’s part,” the company stated. “We were instead the target of a criminal cyber attack.”

Fubo said service was fully restored by Wednesday evening and it regrets the disruption caused in the meantime.

The company said it has reported the incident to law enforcement and engaged Mandiant, an industry-leading incident response firm, to assist with its investigation and response.
