The information was leaked less than a month after Navistar revealed a hack and data breach in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on June 7, and a day before its merger with Volkswagen AG’s TRATON SE went into effect. Navistar issued a statement saying that it is aware of a security incident that affected the company’s systems and that its investigation has confirmed that an unauthorized third party accessed and took certain data from the IT System.
The company also mentioned:
“the investigation is ongoing, and we have taken proactive steps to help minimize the potential impact. Navistar is committed to systems security and the protection of our corporate, customer, dealer, employee and partner information, and we take this responsibility seriously.”
