Japanese auto parts maker Denso suffered a cyber attack
Japanese broadcaster NHK quoted information security company Mitsui Bussan Secure Directions as saying that Pandora’s hacker group claimed to have obtained information on more than 157,000 orders, emails and documents – a total of 1, 4 terabytes of data. The hacker group threatened to spread Denso’s confidential information on the dark web (a website that cannot be accessed from search engines but must use specialized software).
According to Reuters news agency, a Denso spokesman said the company has detected hackers using ransomware to illegally access the network of DENSO Automotive Deutschland GmbH, a subsidiary of Denso in charge of sales and technology of this company in Germany – on 10/3 local time. This spokesman confirmed that the company’s production and business activities have not been affected at the moment.
Denso is the second largest Japanese auto parts manufacturer in the world (after Germany’s Bosch). Denso is headquartered in Japan, specializing in supplying spare parts and components for most of the world’s auto manufacturers. Toyota alone accounts for about 50% of Denso’s total revenue.
