A software company providing computer vaccines to the Defence Ministry has been hacked, police said Wednesday.

The computer of a worker at Hauri, a company that provides vaccine programs to computer servers at the National Defence Ministry, was found to have been hacked, an official from the National Police Agency said.

"While probing a separate case, documents which seemed to have been leaked from Hauri were found," the official added.

The leaked documents included a bid proposal for vaccines submitted to the ministry.

Police initially informed the ministry of the case in April, the official said, adding, "We are still investigating to find the suspects."
