A cyber attack on Honda earlier this week forced the Japanese carmaker to close some of its car plants in Ohio and Turkey, as well as motorcycle factories in India and South America,media reported. The attack comes less than a month after the North American plant reopened, after the plant simply moved its location to work from home because of the new crown outbreak.
Now, a Honda spokesman has announced that the factory under attack has resumed production. Factories in Brazil and India resumed production on Wednesday. But some of the company’s North American online financial services and call centers will continue to shut down, the spokesman said. But production at ohio’s main plant returned to normal Thursday.
Monday’s cyberattack is reported to be the second to hit Honda’s global network, the first of which was the WannaCry cyberattack that swept the globe three years ago.
Fortunately, the customer’s personal information was not disclosed in the attack, which was clarified by a Honda spokesman, but unfortunately he did not comment on the damage caused by the decline in production.
