NHK reported that Bridgestone Americas, the U.S.-based subsidiary of the Japanese tire and parts manufacturer Bridgestone Corporation, suspended operations at several of its plants for about a week in late February due to a cyberattack. The company noticed unauthorized access to its network on Feb. 27 and disconnected many of its manufacturing and retreading facilities in the Americas. Operations at multiple plants in the region were suspended for as long as one week. The network said a hacker group called LockBit 2.0 has claimed involvement in the attack.
