Toyota US parts maker hit by cyberattack, exposing data

Incident follows another breach at European group member

Toyota Auto Body assembles autos for Toyota Motor but also sells some models, such as these tiny electric vehicles, under its own brand.

NAGOYA, Japan -- An American manufacturing unit of Toyota Auto Body has been hacked, the Toyota Motor subsidiary said Thursday, with sensitive information compromised by what is believed to be a Russian cybergang.

The admission came less than a week after another group member of the Japanese auto giant reported a cyberattack.
