Production resumes at Nissan Sunderland plant affected by ransomware 0

Production-resumes-at-Nissan-Sunderland-plant-affected-by-ransomwareProduction resumed as normal at Nissan’s manufacturing plant in Sunderland, following the spate of cyber attacks that took place a week or so ago, targeting a string of high profile companies and organisations across the globe.

Shifts commenced on time and without any irregularities, the company stated in an email.

“While our teams are addressing some localised issues, it’s business as usual today,” a spokesman at the company’s headquarters in Yokohama said in the email.

The WannaCry ransomware worm erupted on Friday, 12th May locking up hundreds of thousands of computers in more than 150 countries, and hitting factories, hospitals, shops and schools worldwide.

The week following the initial attacks saw further businesses, organisations and governments across the globe report further disruption, and while the effect appeared less severe than anticipated, industry professionals flagged lingering risks of the attacks, most of which arrived via email.
