Honda Cyber-Attack Halts Plants in India and Brazil

A four-wheeler plant in Turkey and motorcycle plants in India and Brazil were still out of action

Highlights
  • In total, the cyber-attack affected 11 Honda plants
  • Apart from India, Brazil, and Turkey, five US plants were also affected
  • All US plants have resumed operations, a Honda spokesperson said

Honda plants in Brazil and India have halted operations as the Japanese carmaker battles to recover from a cyber-attack that affected several factories worldwide.

The cyber-attack at the beginning of the week targeted Honda's internal servers and spread a virus through the company's systems, a spokeswoman told AFP on Wednesday.

Motorcycle plants in India and Brazil were still out of action following the attack, while a four-wheel vehicle plant in Turkey resumed operations on Wednesday, the spokeswoman said.

The firm was "still investigating details", she said.

In total, the cyber-attack affected 11 Honda plants -- including five in the US, according to local media reports.

All US plants have resumed operations, the spokeswoman said, declining to elaborate further.

She said the suspension would have only a limited impact on Honda's business globally.

Global automakers including Honda have already been hit hard by a slump in sales due to the new coronavirus pandemic.

Last month, Honda reported a 25.3-percent fall in net profit from the previous year as sales dropped six percent to JPY 14.9 trillion (roughly Rs. 10.45 lakh crores) in the fiscal year ending in March.
