Toyota India said it has notified Indian authorities of the data breach at Toyota Kirloskar Motor, a 89-11 percent joint venture with Indian conglomerate Kirloskar Group.
“Toyota Kirloskar Motor has been notified by one of its service providers of an incident that might have exposed personal information of some of TKM’s customers on the internet,” said TKM in an emailed statement.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor did not disclose the size of the data breach or number of customers affected. Toyota does not reveal the name of the technology provider which is providing cybr security solutions for the automobile major in India.
An unrelated issue at Toyota Motor’s T-Connect service potentially leaked about 296,000 pieces of customer information, it said last October.
