The hacking of TOEI Animation last March seriously jeopardized the work schedule of Dragon Ball Super: Superhero as well as the anime ONE PIECE. In fact, the TV series of Eiichiro Oda's masterpiece has been forced into a forced hiatus for a few weeks.

The new DB Super movie was also postponed for the same reasons, with staff having to wait until the relevant departments fixed the servers to be able to resume work. But what exactly happened? This was revealed by the company itself that released the Report on the investigation of the hacker attack.

An employee of the company downloaded software for work from a third-party website, which in turn was hacked to download an additional software package to facilitate the ransomware attack. On March 6, the TOEI was able to confirm unauthorized access by third parties to the network.

Cybersecurity experts who passed the case immediately have not confirmed any information leaks at this time TOEI animation or company employees. However, the company has promised to strengthen its systems and better train employees to avoid a repeat of this situation. And you instead, what do you think of what happened? As usual, please let us know by leaving a comment in the appropriate box below.
