The Japan Pension Service, which is reeling from the theft of a massive amount of personal data, has discovered two of its personal computers continued to transmit data outside the organization for three days after it contacted police about a possible security breach, sources close to the matter said Thursday.

A large volume of personal information at the pension service could have been leaked during the three days from May 21 via an external email virus sent by hackers.
