As per the report, Panasonic spokesperson Dannea DeLisser declined to say how many people were impacted and the nature of the information accessed.

Panasonic’s update also confirmed that the data breach — which began on June 22 and ended on November 3, before being detected on November 11 — saw the as-yet-unnamed hackers obtain files containing unspecified “business-related information” provided by business partners, as well as information about business partner personnel.

The findings of the company’s internal investigation, which was carried out with the help of an external security advisor, confirmed that a third party illegally accessed a file server in Japan via the server of an overseas subsidiary.

Panasonic said that after detecting the unauthorized access, it “immediately implemented additional security countermeasures,” including strengthening access controls from overseas locations, resetting relevant passwords, and strengthening server access monitoring.
