Mitsubishi Electric said that due to a large-scale cyber attack, personal and customer information may be leaked. According to the analysis, Chinese cyber hacking organizations may be involved in the attack. The computers and servers that were accessed illegally did not contain highly confidential information such as defense and the data of infrastructures such as electricity and railways was not leaked.
Mitsubishi said: “We have confirmed that our network may have been subject to unauthorized access by third parties and that personal information and corporate confidential information may have been leaked to the outside.”
The company conducted internal investigations and found illegal access in most of the headquarters and business headquarters and the management of the head office.
