Ehime Prefectural Police (Japan), Data on unknown # Suspects, Virus

A massive amount of investigation data kept by Ehime Prefectural Police has been leaked onto the Internet, apparently after the computer that kept the data was infected with a virus through the file exchange software Winny, it has been learned.

The amount of information leaked from the Ehime police computer is about four times that recently leaked online from Okayama Prefectural Police.

The leaked data includes investigative reports on a murder case in Uwajima, and expert statements on DNA analysis in a sex offence. It also contains a list of 188 people involved in investigations, plus their mobile phone numbers and addresses. (“Ehime police force leaks huge amount of data following virus attack“)
