CDK Global, a company that provides auto dealerships across the U.S. with software for managing sales and other services, has been hacked, prompting the company to temporarily shut down most of its systems.

That is effectively preventing about 15,000 car dealerships from making sales. General Motors dealerships rely on CDK's systems, as does Group 1 Automotive, an auto retailer with hundreds of dealerships across the U.S. Holman, with dealerships across eight U.S. states, is another CDK client.

What’s scary is that CDK is part of ADP a huge company for payroll management and ADP does a good amount of work with the government agency’s… so was it just easy to start with cdk division before they hit the payroll side of things?

Wanting to say dealer services had segregated infra back in the day but that was a long time ago.

Most likely, but still too close to home for the payroll sector, if hackers got into government information they could steal personal information that would be a mess.
