You've got to read this wild press release I just got from Volvo:

Notice of cyber security breach by third party
Volvo Cars has become aware that one of its file repositories has been illegally accessed by a third party. Investigations so far confirm that a limited amount of the company's R&D property has been stolen during the intrusion. Volvo Cars has earlier today concluded, based on information available, that there may be an impact on the company’s operation.
After detecting the unauthorised access, the company immediately implemented security countermeasures including steps to prevent further access to its property and notified relevant authorities.
Volvo Cars is conducting its own investigation and working with third-party specialist to investigate the property theft. The company does not see, with currently available information, that this has an impact on the safety or security of its customers' cars or their personal data.

That line in the first paragraph "there may be an impact on the company’s operation" sure raises a lot of questions. They say at the end that customer data and vehicle security likely isn't affected, but obviously, they're not saying exactly what was accessed. If it's plans for future vehicles (and it gets leaked) that will be fun for all of us who are anxious to see what the company has in the works. But I'm guessing a company of this size has all kinds of other data that hackers would find more valuable.

Anybody care to speculate on what that might be?
