Internal information about the Tokyo police's anti-terrorism activities
found circulating online was leaked via a server in Luxembourg,
investigative sources have revealed, raising the possibility that there
was intent to disguise the source of the leak.
Furthermore, there have been no signs that computers at the Metropolitan
Police Department (MPD) were infected with a virus via a file-sharing
program, increasing the likelihood that the data was leaked
intentionally. Those involved in the case say that it will be difficult
to trace the leak.
According to investigators and experts, records of the leak -- which
took place via the file-sharing program Winny -- showed that the
information had been uploaded onto the Internet via a server in
Luxembourg. Experts say that when computers in Japan are infected with a
virus, the source of the virus is usually traced to a domestic server.
The MPD is currently trying to trace the original server used to upload
the leaked information.
The MPD has found 114 documents online, which include information on
people believed to be cooperating with terrorism investigations and
those who are under investigation. Of these, 108 documents were in PDF
