Honda shuts Japan plant after WannaCry hits its computer network

Honda shuts Japan plant after WannaCry hits its computer network

Honda had to shut its Sayama plant in Japan for a day after the infamous WannaCry virus hit its computer network. It’s the same ransomware that struck globally earlier this month. 

Honda manufactures the Accord sedan, Odyssey Minivan and Step Wagon compact multipurpose vehicle at this plant. This facility produces close to 1000 vehicles in a day. So due to the shutdown, the Japanese manufacturer will see 1000 vehicles less from its production output. This virus had affected Honda’s global computer networks, but luckily, no other manufacturing facilities were affected. 

Last month, Renault and Nissan were a victim of WannaCry. In fact, the companies had to shut down their production in Japan, France, India, Romania and Britian for a few days. WannaCry targets specific computers, encrypts its data and then demands ransom payments in Bitcoins to decrypt the data.
