The problems at industrial group VDL Groep are not over yet. At the beginning of this month, the group was hit by a digital attack. All 105 companies belonging to the group, including in Asia and America, were affected by it.
VDL Nedcar is now running again, the part that makes vehicles in the Netherlands on behalf of BMW. It is unclear how many of the 105 companies are still affected by the attack and to what extent production will decline as a result. “All companies have been affected in a different way, I can’t comment on that,” said a spokesperson.
Nothing has yet been announced about the nature of the attack at VDL. It is considered that this is a ransomware attack.
The company is a supplier to Philips and ASML, among others. Those companies notice the problems at VDL, writes the Eindhovens Dagblad. Chip machine maker ASML, a major customer, said on Wednesday at the presentation of the quarterly figures that the company is suffering from supplier delays. That delay affects the entire chain, and part of it is the situation at VDL, a spokesperson confirms to the NOS.
According to her, the hack at VDL will not cause any problems in ASML’s business operations. Philips has not yet responded substantively to the questions from the NOS.
