BREAKING NEWS – MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC SUFFERS MAJOR CYBERATTACK

Mitsubishi Group’s electronics and electrical equipment arm – Mitsubishi Electric – has suffered a major cyberattack.

According to a statement from the company, sensitive information on government agencies and other business partners has been compromised – and that a Chinese group is the prime suspect behind this attack.

As reported by The Japan Times, the leaked information includes email exchanges with the Defensive Ministry and the Nuclear Regulation Authority – as well as private documents related to projects in collaboration with private firms.

However, the company – while conceding that sensitive information had been leaked – is adamant that none of the leaks revolve around defence or infrastructure.

Though Mitsubishi Electric refuse to confirm any damage or negative effects, the company stated that it took appropriate measures immediately after detecting suspicious activity on its devices in Japan.

The true effect of this major attack, though, remains to be seen.

Cybercrime played a major role in 2019 and it is no surprise that this trend has continued into the new decade. Trends indicate that 2020 will be an even better year for cybercriminals as businesses around the world remain unprotected against such activity.
