The Dacia plant in Mioveni restarted production after dealing with the effects of last weekend's WannaCry cyber attack, the automaker said.

Renault, which owns the local Dacia plant, halted manufacturing operations in Romania and Sandouville, France after the global cyber attack, romania-insider.com reported, citing France24.com.

"On Monday, at 07:00, the activity at the Dacia Mioveni industrial platform was restarted as usual, following the efforts and reactivity of our team. All the IT systems of the Renault Romania Group are working normally and are secure," the company said.

"After the Ransomeware virus affected Groupe Renault on Friday, 12 May, the situation is now under control. A series of proactive measures were undertaken immediately, such as the temporary halt of the industrial activity in order to stop the spread of the virus and protect the group," the company said.

Romania was among the 10 most affected countries in the WannaCry cyber attack, according to Russian antivirus producer Kaspersky.
