Pak Suzuki Hit By Cyber Attack

Pak Suzuki said its corporate data “has been leaked” due to a cyberattack. The company shared the development in its notice sent to the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX).

The notice reads:

“On April 9, 2024, we came to know that our corporate data had been leaked due to a cyberattack. Initial investigations suggest that data related to HR, financials, etc., from the server, has been ported out to public IP (Internet Protocol). We have onboarded a security consultant for detailed forensic assessment and eliminating potential security threats from the entire infrastructure.”

Attacks on auto manufacturers by cybercriminals have increased recently; examples include attacks on Renault & Nissan, Honda, Toyota, and Hino in Japan as well as numerous other markets worldwide. But this is probably the first time when such an attack has hit an automaker in Pakistan. Pak Suzuki shared that detailed findings will be concluded after the completion of the assessment.
