Honda network hit by cyber-attack

Honda has this week been hit by a cyber-attack impacting its operations around the world.

The problem is affected its ability to access computer servers, use email and make use of its internal systems.

Production systems outside of Japan have also been effected.

In a statement, the car-maker said: “Honda can confirm that a cyber-attack has taken place on the Honda network.”

“Work is being undertaken to minimise the impact and to restore full functionality of production, sales and development activities.”

Honda currently runs a factory in Swindon, where it makes its Civic cars, which is due to close in 2021.

The company confirmed that work at the UK plant was halted alongside a suspension of other operations in North America, Turkey, Italy and Japan.

Some cyber-security experts have said it looks like a ransomware attack, which means that hackers might have encrypted data or locked Honda out of some of its IT systems.

The company has insisted no data has been breached and added that “at this point, we see minimal business impact”.

    Well this all looks promising when the manufacturers make the cars more connected and reliant on computer communications!
