I drove my wife to pick her car up from service and the dealer told her everything was down. At least the service was completed lol

Yeah it’s been a crazy day. We were still able to have people signed, but it took a lot longer than it normally would since everything had to be done by hand like the good old days.

Tried to. GM said his system was down. Now I know why

So out of all the times whenever I’m on the phone with a rep and told their computer is running slow, today was actually “the” day this was true? SMH.

There’s a recent pattern of attacks on financial systems/software that were designed to align with various US holidays.

Each of these required more than just a few days before these companies returned to normal operations.

I wonder if there’s any connection.

Well if you are a hacking group attacking when most resources on Vacation is a sound strategy. THOUGH, Juneteenth is not a holiday for most, so I think this one just was coincidental.

If this one was intentional, doing it at the End of the Month would’ve caused more issues.

Don’t give them any ideas.

Lol, the only ones I am giving those ideas to are the uninformed, real hackers know this and a lot more complex ways.

A company I worked for was hit by a ransomware attack on New Years Eve night. Timing was impeccable and we were down for nearly 2 weeks as they really got a hold of a lot

at long as their espresso machine is still working in the lounge … :smiley:

Had my 4Runner in for service yesterday and they couldn’t do anything. The women told me it was a hack and they are holding the system ransom. (Grain of salt)

I thought it was just Toyota, didn’t realize it was the actual software itself.

15,000 dealers nationwide. Sales and service, and cdk says it may be days.

The dealer I service at said they switched to CDK within the past year when I texted a friend who’s a manager there and he said it’s proven to be their worst decision ever. He said it’s been hell the past two days but they somehow had a good day yesterday as far as taking deposits to do deals once CDK is back up.

Honestly this is a good time to short all of the big publics like Asbury. They all use CDK and this will cost them millions.

3 more hackr deals with cdk down. Contracted and delivered. Y’all are amazing :heart:
