Trend Micro data revealed due to virus
The failure of a Trend Micro (Profile, Products, Articles) Inc. employee to install his company's own antivirus software led to the uploading of some company reports to a popular Japanese peer-to-peer file sharing network, the company said Monday.
About a year ago an employee, who is no longer with Trend Micro, copied data including reports to his boss and proposals regarding the company's products to his home computer, said Kazuhisa Tagaya, a spokesman for the Tokyo company. However the computer was infected through the Winny file sharing application with a virus that caused the files to be released over the file sharing network.
