“Honda can confirm that a cyber-attack has taken place on the Honda network.” This is the statement that Honda released. They continued to explain that the problem is affecting their access to computers, email and other internal systems. But it seems that the damage is not just being dealt to the Japanese branches.
The company, which produces cars, bikes and many other engine-related tools, discovered that one of their servers had been attacked externally. Cybersecurity experts have identified it as a ransomware case, meaning that Honda could be locked out or unable to access their IT systems.
Honda has stated that they see “minimal business impact” and hope that systems will return to normal at some point this week.
