...My hunch is this is a fancy way of not saying they just fell victim to a ransomware attack.
I think the ransomware suggestion is the most plausible due both to the length of the outage and the vague statements coming from the company.

If it were some hardware/ software/ configuration snafu I'm confident that they would've resolved it (at least partially) buy now. Or they'd at least be providing more concrete explanations and timelines.

The first rule of negotiating with a ransomware hacker is that you don't make any public statements confirming you're a victim lest the perpetrator gets angry and starts spilling your data around publicly.
