Toyota restarts production after supplier hacking

(ANSA) – TOKYO, 02 MAR – Toyota has reopened all 14 plants on the domestic market after the shutdown caused by a cyber attack on one of its suppliers in recent days. The first Japanese auto maker said it had restarted assembly plants with the restoration of the production data system linked to Kojima Industries, although the anomaly in the supplier’s computer system has not been fully resolved. Kojima had reported a message on Saturday containing a virus and encountered problems with his server, and for this reason he decided to shut down his network to prevent the virus from spreading to his customers. The shutdown of Toyota’s factories resulted in an auto manufacturing loss of 13,000 vehicles, equivalent to 5% of monthly output. The anomaly occurred after Japan’s Ministry of Industry warned of the risks of escalating cyber-piracy following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, although there is no evidence at the time that the attack started by hackers in Moscow. The 14 plants involved in the production also cover the truck brands that Toyota controls, Hino Motors, and mini cars from Daihatsu Motor. (HANDLE).
