We thank you very much indeed for your trust and continued support.
This is to announce that potential vulnerability to cyber attack has been located to our Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) products. Subsequently, the corrective measures have been taken, and the potential risks have been resolved. Please see below for details.
Nature of the vulnerability
It turned out that our VDR may be accessed using a PC connected through network, and a certain commands may be executed with root privileges. If that occurred, there would be a possibility that the stored data within the VDR may be deleted (it is important to note that data falsification or overwriting is not possible).
Corrective measures taken
The new versions of the software with security patch have been released in October 2015. The version numbers of the new software together with corresponding version numbers of the older software are tabulated as follows:
