Mitsubishi Heavy Industries confirmed that 83 computers and servers at 11 locations, including its headquarters and shipyards in Nagasaki and Kobe, were infected, according to the Guardian newspaper. The company declined to say whether any confidential data was stolen.

The Japanese defense ministry has criticized Mitsubishi for delaying its notification of the breach for a month. “It’s up to the defense ministry to decide whether or not the information is important. That is not for Mitsubishi Heavy to decide. A report should have been made”, a spokesman for the ministry told Reuters.
