Honda has said it is dealing with a cyber-attack that is impacting its operations around the world.
“Honda can confirm that a cyber-attack has taken place on the Honda network,” the Japanese car-maker said in a statement.
It added that the problem was affecting its ability to access its computer servers, use email and otherwise make use of its internal systems.
“There is also an impact on production systems outside of Japan,” it added.
“Work is being undertaken to minimise the impact and to restore full functionality of production, sales and development activities.”
The firm – which makes motorcycles, cars, generators and lawn mowers, among other products – said one of its internal servers was attacked externally.
It added that “the virus had spread” throughout its network, but did not provide further details.
