INCIDENT

Toyota Financial Services (TFS) is warning customers it suffered a data breach, stating that sensitive personal and financial data was exposed in the attack. Earlier this month, Toyota Kreditbank GmbH in Germany admitted that hackers gained access to customers' personal data.

German news outlet Heise received a sample of the notices sent by Toyota to German customers, informing that personal information, including leasing and bank account information has been compromised. However, the internal investigation isn't complete yet, and Toyota promises to promptly update affected customers should the internal investigation reveal further data exposure.
