Why would they bother?

It's China.

Not North Korea. They have better rocket technology.

@Moonraker: China has far superior rocket and space technology than Japan or India. Through Japan's unsafe H3 rocket is nobody interested except India as if !

Could the culprit be China, North Korea, or Russia, although the odds are high?

In the first place, the countries that have proper rocket technology are the United States, Russia, France, India, Japan, and China.

Although these countries have the ability to launch satellites weighing more than 1 ton, there are still differences in technological superiority and inferiority.

Hacking by China and North Korea can happen at any time, so Japan should spend more money on countermeasures.

It's too late once it's stolen.

So many down votes. Clearly there are quite a few here who won't accept any negative view of Japan, even when based on fact. Would love to know why.

Do you think, even if this is true, it rules out Chinese hackers' involvement? Of course it doesn't. China conducts an endless grey-zone war that is clear for the world to see.

@Moonraker: Do you think the CIA don't do hacking at China or Russia? Even if it is true, other western spy agencies does!

There's no technology of value to be gained in those countries so they can focus on the respective governments at least.
