    On November 16, Yamaha was able to confirm that a partial leakage involving employees' personal information occurred.

    Following the attack, Yamaha and its counterpart immediately created a countermeasures team to prevent further damage while investigating the scope of the impacts. They are also working on a recovery together with an external internet security company.

    The full extent of the damage, Yamaha said, has yet to be confirmed.

    In addition, the YMPH servers and systems that were not compromised by the attack have already been restored, the firm noted.

    “The attack was limited to one of the servers managed by YMPH and we have confirmed that it has not affected the headquarters or any other companies in the Yamaha Motor group,” Yamaha said in a press release.

    “However, we will continue to closely monitor the situation while continuing our work to fully restore the systems at YMPH damaged by the attack as quickly as possible,” it added.

    Yamaha Motor apologized for the inconvenience and worry that the incident may have caused.
