A U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) computer outage lasting about four hours hit several U.S. airports on Monday, causing long lines and delays at immigration checks as thousands of travelers returned from New Year’s holidays, the agency said.

“At this time, there is no indication the service disruption was malicious in nature,” a spokeswoman said in a statement.

The delay hit from about 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. U.S. Eastern Standard Time (2200 GMT to 0200 GMT Tuesday) and all airports are back on line, the statement from spokeswoman Jennifer Evanitsky said.

Airports in places such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston and Atlanta were affected, local airport officials said.
