Major bummer here! Wonder how deep the implications run from this? Seems nobody cares about anything anymore?

"Mitsubishi Electric is one of Japan's biggest defense and infrastructure contractors, with active projects within the Japanese military, but also telecommunications, railways, and the electrical grid.

Before going public with the news today, Mitsubishi Electric had also notified members of the Japanese government and Ministry of Defense, according to local newspaper Mainichi.

One day people will wake up and realize China is the enemy.
Well they keep doing it and seeing that nobody is willing to do anything about it because telling them to F off would tank any economy that tried it would be political sucuide

The attackers stole 200MB of data, and Mitsubishi waited almost a year to report it to the public?
Ouch.

Our hearing about it a year later doesn't mean no one but Mitsubishi knew about it for a year. How did that line go in that country song, oh yea ...

200MB? ... that’s not much, seems odd it was so little. And yeah, not surprised China is doing this stuff, so is every other capable country.

How is that not much?
Just 10KB of data could comprise of thousands of user accounts, SSNs, financial data, etc.

200MB might be potentially damning for the company, at least internally.
