Mitsubishi Electric reports cyber-attack

6 months ago!…:

Mitsubishi Electric says it suffered a cyber-attack last year that may have compromised personal and corporate data. The company is engaged in businesses ranging from household appliances to communications, space and defense.

The electronics giant says the hacking came to light after an in-house terminal showed suspicious movements last June. The company did not identify any suspects for the unauthorized access.

Mitsubishi says it confirmed there was no breach of sensitive data on defense, electric power, railroad and other critical infrastructure.

It says highly confidential technical data and important client information were not compromised either.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said the government has been informed that there was no leak of information related to defense equipment or the electric power sector. He said the industry ministry and the Cabinet cyber-security center will take the lead in monitoring developments.
