BleepingComputer reported that Japanese tech giant Fujitsu discovered that several of its systems were infected by malware and warns that the hackers stole customer data.

An announcement published late last week on the firm’s news portal discloses a major cybersecurity incident that has compromised systems and data, including sensitive information of customers. “We have confirmed the presence of malware on several of our business computers, and as a result of our internal investigation, it has been discovered that files containing personal information and information related to our customers could be illicitly removed,” reads a Fujitsu notice.

After confirming the presence of the malware, we promptly isolated the affected business computers and have taken measures such as strengthening the monitoring of other business computers.”

Fujitsu says it will continue investigating how the malware found its way into business systems and what data it exfiltrated.

Though the firm says it has received no reports of the misuse of customer data, it has informed the Personal Information Protection Commission about the incident and is currently preparing individual notices for impacted customers.
