TOKYO, Sept 20 Servers and computers at Japan's
IHI Corp were targeted in a cyber attack and the
company is in contact with police about it, the Nikkei business
daily said on its Website on Tuesday.
It is the second Japanese defence contractor reported to be
the victim of such an attack, after Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
said earlier hackers had accessed its computer systems.
An IHI official said he was unable to immediately comment.
IHI supplies engine parts for fighter planes to the Defence
Ministry as well as containment vessels and pressurised vessels
for nuclear reactors.
