Nissan’s manufacturing plant in Sunderland, northeast England affected by a cyber attack

News Hour:

Nissan’s manufacturing plant in Sunderland, northeast England, has been affected by a cyber attack that has hit nearly 100 countries, a spokesman for the Japanese carmaker said on Saturday, reports Reuters.

“Like many organizations around the world, some Nissan entities were recently targeted by a ransomware attack. Our teams are responding accordingly and there has been no major impact on our business,” he said in a statement. He said the situation at the plant, which employs 7,000, continued to be monitored.

On Friday, cyber extortionists tricked victims into opening malicious malware attachments to spam emails that appeared to contain invoices, job offers, security warnings and other legitimate files. The attack disrupted Britain’s health system and companies including carmaker Renault and global shipper FedEx.
