Uh oh. A plant belonging to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries was hacked into recently, although it’s not quite clear what data was pilfered in the attack.
Forbes notes, based off a Reuters report that originated with the Yomiuri newspaper that around 80 malware-infected computers were found at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ HQ in Tokyo, as well as at manufacturing plants in Kobe, Nagasaki and Nagoya. It’s not clear what data was taken — essentially the company’s not saying — but you’ve got to have nerves of steel to even attempt something like this. If they find you, they already have missiles.
