Possible Toyota data breach affecting 3.1 million customers

Post by IceCube » Wed Apr 24, 2019 10:35 pm

Several Toyota companies have announced that they might have suffered data breach attempts, with one affecting 3.1 million Toyota and Lexus customers.

In a brief account describing the most significant of these, the Japanese parent company said that on 21 March attackers gained “unauthorized access on the network” which led them to customer data belonging to eight sales subsidiaries in the country.

Toyota said it is still investigating what data might have been breached, or even whether any data has been breached:
We have not confirmed the fact that customer information has been leaked at this time, but we will continue to conduct detailed surveys, placing top priority on customer safety and security.
