Nissan is examining whether source code for its North American division’s mobile apps, marketing tools and more have leaked online, the company said.
“We are aware of a claim regarding a reported improper disclosure of Nissan’s confidential information and source code,” said a Nissan spokesperson. “We take this type of matter seriously and are conducting an investigation.”
Tillie Kottmann, a software engineer, publicized the apparently leaked information earlier this week on Twitter and Telegram. They told CyberScoop the information came via a “severely mismanaged” server that had the username and password of “admin:admin.”
“I was informed about the server by an anonymous source but acquired it myself and can thus mostly verify it,” Kottmann said via a Twitter direct message exchange. Kottmann said they also heard some ex-Nissan employees recognized projects there.
On Monday, Kottmann said the server exposed a broad range of data.
Nissan Canada previously suffered a data breach in 2017.
The technology news site ZDNet first reported on the incident Wednesday.
