Toyota at the 2023 Auto Expo
The freshly released Innova Hycross and the new generation Land Cruiser SUV will be on display at the forthcoming Auto Expo from Toyota. Toyota will display the GR Corolla hatchback for aficionados. Additionally, Toyota will debut a GR model in the nation for the first time. The automaker plans to display its powerful hybrid cars, a plug-in combination, and a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV). Pure EVs and Toyota’s futuristic hydrogen technology will also be on show. The automaker may also introduce the Urban Cruiser Hyryder CNG, for which reservations are currently being taken for Rs 25,000.
How did this incident happen to the Toyota Kirloskar Motor?
No other information regarding the number of clients affected or the type of data compromised.
Toyota stated in October that from July 2017, the private data of close to 300,000 consumers might have been accessed. According to the Japanese automaker, the email messages and customer relationship management details of some T-Connect subscribers have been compromised.
This is the most recent in a string of cyberattacks that have revealed customer personal information. Both privately owned and government-run businesses have been the target of the attacks. Customer information for about 30 million Indian Railways passengers is thought to have been disclosed and made accessible on the dark web in December.
This data breach occurred in the wake of a data leak in October when Toyota Kirloskar Motor reported that perhaps 296,000 pieces of client information from its T-Connect service had been exposed.
