Japan has launched an investigation into the potential exposure of confidential missile data in the wake of a cyberattack on Mitsubishi Electric Corp. According to the Associated Press, the leak of information relating to a prototype, “cutting-edge” missile is suspected. The missile, a speed glider known as HGV, was documented in files Mitsubishi and other manufacturers held as part of a bidding process.
