Today, the Akira ransomware gang claimed that it breached the network of Nissan Australia, the Australian division of Japanese car maker Nissan.
The attackers have threatened to leak sensitive business and client data online, as ransom negotiations with Nissan failed after the company either refused to engage or pay the ransom.
Nissan says it’s still investigating the incident’s impact and whether personal information has been accessed.
“We cannot yet confirm the extent of the cyber incident. We are working with our global incident response team and cybersecurity experts to investigate the incident as a matter of urgency,” Nissan said.
“Some dealer systems will be impacted however, your local Nissan Dealership is operating. Please speak directly to your local Nissan dealer to assist with all vehicle and servicing queries.”
Nissan is investigating cyberattack and potential data breach.
