Australia   Employees have lost access to email and other cloud-based information

Toyota Australia staff have been told to switch off their computers after the country’s No. 1 car brand was hit by a cyber attack.


Employees have lost access to email and other cloud-based information following what the company describes as “an attempted cyber attack”.

Staff were told to switch off computers yesterday morning and informed the company would be offline until lunchtime tomorrow.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank customers for their patience.”

The issue extends beyond Toyota’s automotive arm to its spare parts, finance and material handling (forklift) business as well as luxury offshoot Lexus.

Toyota’s main customer-facing website remains operational but the hack has severely hampered the company’s ability to communicate with its network of dealers.

The brand dominates the Australian new car market, accounting for one in five new cars sold.
