(Reuters) -Colonial Pipeline on Tuesday said its corporate website was facing a temporary service disruption that is unrelated to the ransomware cyberattack.

The website is down since early Tuesday as the operator of the largest fuel pipeline in the United States deals with a cyber-security attack that shut its entire network.

The company in an emailed response said it continues to make progress on its system restart plan, and will provide an update when the website is restored.
