CNN, (WILX) - Several newspapers across the U.S. may have been victims of a foreign cyber attack.

Beginning Friday, several papers including the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal suffered printing and distribution delays.

The L.A. Times, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, said that the attack "appears to have originated from outside the United States."

A spokeswoman for Tribune Publishing could not confirm details.

Tribune Publishing said malware was detected on its servers Friday.

In an internal memo, Tribune CEO Justin Dearborn said workers were forced to create workarounds to get Saturday editions printed.

They say no customer credit card or personal information was compromised.
