(update) Jp: 14,000 in 26 countries, regions get leaked Tokyo police info on terrorism

About 14,000 people in 26 countries and regions have acquired what appear to be leaked Tokyo police documents on international terrorism using file-sharing software, a Japanese network security firm said Thursday.

NetAgent Co said the documents have been obtained by 13,734 people in Japan, 132 in China, 95 in Taiwan and 77 in South Korea.

The company used three file-sharing applications—Winny, Share and Perfect Dark—to determine how many people had obtained the documents between the detection of the apparent leak on Oct 28 and Monday.

The police have also been busy, but their focus seems to be on trying to figure out the source of the leak.

And of course, the figures provided by the security firm do not include the people who just bought the book with all of the files.
