Re: This approach is working...
This whole situation is beyond hilarious on so many levels. One -- in today's modern era that we live in, it is surprising to know that a person has yet to use a computer. Two -- then how could he have been assigned to a cybersecurity role then? Thankfully he has been found out, else security breaches would be no breaking news to Japan's infrastructure as a whole.

Wanna bet?
If he carries a smart phone, and used it, he's used a computer.  A very powerful one at that.
