Vehicle inspections will not be available in Massachusetts at least through Tuesday, the Registry of Motor Vehicles said, as the company behind the state’s inspection system recovers from a malware attack last week.

The firm, Applus Technologies, took its system offline Tuesday in Massachusetts and several other states. On Sunday, the RMV issued a statement on Twitter calling on the company to provide a timeframe for when the software will be back online.

“The RMV continues to urge its vendor, Applus Technologies, to provide a timeline to resolution and confirmation of the extent of this nationwide system outage impacting citizens in need of a vehicle inspection, and the small businesses who run inspection stations in MA,” the statement said.
