Michigan auto supplier Gentex Corp. suffered cyberattack several months ago, joining the growing ranks of manufacturers nationwide to have experienced a data breach.
The Tier 1 supplier of automatic-dimming rearview mirrors and electronics for the automotive, aerospace and fire protection industries confirmed to Crain's Grand Rapids Business that it had suffered a ransomware attack.
"Gentex is aware of the data breach that occurred several months ago, and we have communicated to all affected parties. It's important to note that the breach has not had an impact on our operations," the company said in an emailed statement that did not address other questions about the incident.
Newton, Mass.-based TechTarget Inc., a business-to-business provider of content serving technology buyers, first reported on the data breach last week after being contacted by ransomware group Dunghill.
