"We apologize deeply for causing great trouble and concern," the firm said in a statement.

Well that solves everything then.

How about penalties for breach of contract for companies and reckless endangerment?

Like if the shoe was on the other foot and a member of the public breaches contract and endangers a company's profit margin.

(sigh) Line again.

These jokers came already under the spotlight when it came out that their data got accessed by their own outlet in China a little bit too much for comfort.

And still, the J-gov is pushing the idea of using Line as a mean to access / use administrative services, possibly in tie with MyNumber...Funs and frolics ahead...

"leaked" means they sold the info. It always does.

That a company is lax with data is a concern. But from the description of the data that was accessible, this incident is unlikely to be a problem for anyone.
