Mitsubishi Electric, a Japanese defense contractor, said information such as individuals and customers could be leaked as a result of the massive cyberattack. According to the analysis, China’s cyber-hacking organization may have been involved in the attack. The computers and servers that were illegally accessed did not contain highly classified information about the use of infrastructure such as defense and electricity and railways, which were not disclosed.
Mitsubishi Electric said it “did not confirm” the “victimization and impact” of the cyber attack. In June last year, equipment such as Mitsubishi Electric’s domestic servers were found to be suspicious.
The company conducted an internal investigation and found illegal access in most of the headquarters and head office management. The investigation is said to have continued into the near future because of the clever ness of the illegal visits.
