Japanese aerospace company Kawasaki Heavy Industries on Monday warned of a security incident that may have led to unauthorized access of customer data.
According to the company’s data breach notification, it first discovered unauthorized parties accessing a server in Japan, from an overseas office in Thailand, on June 11, 2020. After terminating that access, the company throughout the following days in June discovered several other incidents of unauthorized access. Kawasaki said these stemmed from other overseas sites in Indonesia, the Philippines, and the United States.
Of note, while Kawasaki said that “some information from overseas offices may have been leaked to external parties,” the company has not yet found evidence of leaking information to the external network. However, the company said it is currently contacting customers who may have been affected by the unauthorized access.
