Toyota suffers customer data leak

Toyota Motor Corp has found that about 296,000 pieces of customer information from its T-Connect service might have been leaked.

Toyota said 296,019 email addresses and customer numbers of those using T-Connect were potentially leaked.

The affected customers are individuals who signed up to the service’s website using their email addresses since July 2017.

Toyota said there was no possibility, though, that users’ sensitive personal information, such as names, phone numbers or credit card information, were leaked.

The Japanese automaker cautioned that there is a possibility of spamming, phishing scams and unsolicited email messages being sent to the users’ email addresses.
