(Reuters) — Rheinmetall suffered a cyberattack on the division of its business dealing with industrial customers, mostly in the automotive sector, the company said Friday, adding its military division was unaffected.

“Rheinmetall is currently investigating the extent of the damages and is in close contact with the relevant authorities,” a spokesperson said.

State prosecutors in Cologne said they were investigating the attack, declining to provide further details. Spiegel, which reported the attack earlier Friday, said its origins were unknown.
