Toyota To Shutdown Japanese Production Lines Due To Cyber Attack

Japanese carmaker, Toyota Motor Corp, on Monday said it was preparing
to shutdown all of its plants in Japan as from March 1 due to a cyber
attack on one of its domestic suppliers, according to local media
reports.

The company Toyota will temporarily shutdown operations at 28
production lines in 14 factories nationwide.

Supplier, Kojima Industries, suspects it may have been hit by a
cyberattack; the supplier makes metal, plastic and electronic
components.

Toyota has been suffering from chip shortages and COVID-19-related
disruptions since January.

The latest shutdown comes at a time when the automaker is looking to
ramp up production and make up for lost production to meet the soaring
demand for cars. (dpa/NAN)
