The manufacturer of automobile hoses Nichirin became a victim of extortionate software


On Wednesday, June 22, the Japanese manufacturer of automobile hoses Nichirin reported that its subsidiary in the United States was subjected to a cyberattack using extortionate software. As a result of the incident, he had to turn off the computerized control of production processes, writes Reuters.

The American division of Nichirin, which supplies hoses to Japanese car manufacturers, was forced to switch to manual production and delivery in order to continue to supply its customers with the necessary parts.

The company is currently assessing the potential impact of the cyberattack on its customers and intends to provide more information as soon as it becomes available.

The official website of Nichirin also published a warning about possible fake letters sent from her e-mail address. The company strongly recommends against opening any files attached to these emails.
