A Canadian-based international manufacturer of die cast tools and car parts has been the victim of a cyber attack. Exco Technologies said Monday that three production facilities within its Large Mould Group are recovering from a cyber incident last week. The Toronto-headquartered company temporarily disabled some computer systems as it investigated this incident. It is in the middle of bringing these systems back online, and expects operations to be substantially restored over the next two weeks.
Shipments to customers have not and are not expected to be materially interrupted. The statement didn’t detail the kind of attack, or whether personal or corporate data was accessed. It said independent experts have been retained to help the company in dealing with the matter.
