Nissan hit by 'cyber incident' in Australia, New Zealand

WELLINGTON, Dec 7, 2023 (BSS/AFP) - Japanese car giant Nissan warned customers Thursday that its operations in Australia and New Zealand had been hit by a "cyber incident".

Nissan said it had notified the national cyber security centres in both countries while the company's global response team assessed the scale of the attack.

It was unclear whether any personal information had been accessed, the company said in a statement.

"While the extent of the incident is still under investigation, Nissan encourages its customers to be vigilant across their accounts, including looking out for any unusual or scam activities," the statement added.

The incident had not so far affected its dealer network, Nissan said, adding that it was working to restore its systems.
