The Defense Ministry is investigating a possible leak of details of a new state-of-the-art missile in a large-scale cyberattack on Mitsubishi Electric Corp, the Asahi Shimbun newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The ministry suspects hackers stole performance requirements that were sent to several defense-industry companies as part of the bidding process for the project, the Asahi reported, citing government sources whom it did not identify. Mitsubishi Electric did not win the bid for the prototype, the newspaper said.
