Panasonic discloses data breach after network hack

Japanese multinational conglomerate Panasonic disclosed a security breach after unknown threat actors gained access to servers on its network this month.

“Panasonic Corporation has confirmed that its network was illegally accessed by a third party on November 11, 2021,” the company said in a press release issued Friday.

Panasonic has reported the incident to the relevant authorities and has taken measures to prevent access to its network from external servers.

The Japanese electronics giant has also hired the services of a third party to investigate the attack-which Panasonic tagged as a “Leak” in the press release-and find if any of the data accessed during the intrusion includes customer personal information.

“In addition to conducting its own investigation, Panasonic is currently working with a specialist third-party organization to investigate the leak and determine if the breach involved customers’ personal information and/or sensitive information related to social infrastructure,” the company added.

A Panasonic spokesperson was not immediately available for comment when contacted by BleepingComputer.
