Honda has been hit by a suspected ransomware attack, BBC News reported. Global production was halted Monday, and it had not restarted at its main plant in Ohio, nor in Turkey, India or Brazil, at the time of this writing.
Honda can confirm that a cyber-attack has taken place on the Honda network,” the Japanese car-maker said in a statement. It added that the problem was affecting its ability to access its computer servers, use email and otherwise make use of its internal systems. “There is also an impact on production systems outside of Japan,” it added. “Work is being undertaken to minimise the impact and to restore full functionality of production, sales and development activities.” The firm – which makes motorcycles, cars, generators and lawn mowers, among other products – said one of its internal servers was attacked externally.
