Audi said it was able to respond quickly after the hacker attack. "We are currently assessing the impact on Audi are continuing to monitor the situation very closely," an Audi spokesperson said in an email to Automotive News Europe.
"Hacker attacks are a risk that we take very seriously. System security and data protection are top priorities for Audi," the spokesperson added. "We are therefore continuously working to secure our IT systems with the latest technology in order to detect attacks on our IT at an early stage and keep their consequences as low as possible."
BMW said the automaker was also aware of the cyberattack. "This doesn't have an impact on our production at the moment," a spokesman said. "We cannot provide further information but are in close contact with our supplier."
