The one-day domestic production stoppage likely impacted around 13,000-vehicles worth of production for the world’s top automaker. That’s represents about 5% of output for the month of February.

Kojima Press confirmed Tuesday its server was subject to a suspected ransomware attack over the weekend. It subsequently shut down its server and is aiming to restore its system from March 2, a spokesperson for the company said late Monday.
