Monday’s Yomiuri gave top play to a report saying that a large volume of research and personnel data may have been stolen from the computer of a researcher at the Hydrogen Isotope Research Center of the University of Toyama. The facility is well known for its research on tritium, which can be used for nuclear fusion. The data may have leaked over the six-month period from a cyberattack against the facility in November 2015 through June.
