Panasonic Confirms Six Months Of Data Breaches

Panasonic has confirmed its network was breached by hackers over a six-month period this year, after initially playing down the issue.

The Japanese giant said in a press release that its network was “illegally accessed by a third party” on November 11, and “some data on a file server had been accessed during the intrusion.”

Turns out that, on further probing, Panasonic spokesperson Dannea DeLisser revealed the breach spanned from June 22 to November 3, and was only discovered on November 11.

“After detecting the unauthorised access, the company immediately reported the incident to the relevant authorities and implemented security countermeasures, including steps to prevent external access to the network,” the company said.

“Panasonic would like to express its sincerest apologies for any concern or inconvenience resulting from this incident.”
