Toyota Motor will shut all its plants in Japan on Tuesday after a major supplier was hit by a suspected cyberattack, according to Nikkei, which said it appeared that the management system at Kojima Industries, which makes plastic parts, was halted after being hit by some kind of cyberattack.
It said the carmaker is trying to determine if it will be able to return to normal operations after Wednesday. The shutdown of all domestic plants on Tuesday will affect production of around 10,000 vehicles, or about 5% of its monthly output in Japan.
