Only one month after Mitsubishi Machinery Parts claimed there was “no possibility” that data was stolen following cyber-attacks, the company is now admitting it’s “possible.” This would mean that some sensitive information may have been stolen.
The attack occurred when information had been moved from one server to another and it was possible the data had been transferred out of the company, Mitsubishi Machinery said in a statement on October 25th. Mitsubishi acknowledged the attack the day after Japanese newspaper reported the attack. However, Mitsubishi have been quick to point out that “no possibility of any leakage of defense-related information at this point” and later claimed that “the company investigated the incident further and recognized the possibility of some data leakage from the server in question”. Mitsubishi machinery parts can be found in Ireland.
