Sensitive security information leaked onto the Internet

May 18, 2006

Following a virus infection, extremely critical security information about a thermoelectric power plant in Japan has been made available on the Internet, according to various media reports. The recently-discovered virus, which has not been named yet, is said to have leaked certain documents containing very sensitive information about the plant's security arrangements.

The documents leaked also contained the names and addresses of its security personnel and other personal confidential information, via the popular Share file-sharing program.

The incident occurred after a 40 year-old security employee at Chubu Electric installed Share on his computer in March.

"There have been a series of viruses written specifically to leak information from infected PCs onto Japanese file-sharing networks, causing embarrassing headlines for the companies concerned," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos.

"Data breaches like this are serious, and catapult sensitive information that should be kept confidential into the public domain for anyone to download."

Only four months ago, the power company suffered a similar problem when it announced that more sensitive information was leaked via the Winny file-sharing program.

The company said at the time that it would prohibit the installation of file-sharing software on employees' computers and better educate its staff regarding the safety of business data.
