From Automotive News :
STOCKHOLM -- Volvo Cars said it had launched an investigation into a cyber security breach and the theft of some research and development data, which could impact the company's operation.

"Investigations so far confirm that a limited amount of the company's R&D property has been stolen during the intrusion," the Swedish carmaker said in a statement on Friday. It added that "there may be an impact on the company's operation," but did not specify what that might be.

Volvo said it did not see an impact on the security of its customers' cars or their personal data. The company said it had implemented security countermeasures to prevent further access to its property, while notifying relevant authorities. "Volvo Cars is conducting its own investigation and working with third-party specialist to investigate the property theft," the company said.

In hi tech Crimes we really need a new word. Stollen in the good old material world means you no longer have it but in hi tech it means it was copied unless Volvo was really really silly.

I wonder how someone copying the data could impact their R&D.
