Medical device maker Medtronic said it was the victim of a cyber attack last year.
"Medtronic, along with two other large medical device manufacturers, discovered an unauthorised intrusion to our systems that was believed to originate from hackers in Asia," the company said in a 10-K regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, that was released today.
"We concluded that the intrusion did not breach any of the databases where we store patient data," it added.
Company officials could not be reached to elaborate. (Reuters)
