There are the normal reports, providing vague references to Chinese hackers gaining access to sensitive information at some unnamed installation or organization and then there is this report from Korea. Besides the name of the company involved, it also gives fairly specific details about the type of sensitive information contained on the company’s computer system.
The research institute suspects the culprits are Chinese or North Korean hackers but doesn’t know specifically what information they stole. In the worst case, the blueprints of missiles and Aegis ship could have been stolen.
It’s shocking that our major defense industries are open to attacks from hackers and that our missiles are vulnerable to theft by cyber terrorists. A general review of our cyber security system is needed.
Really, a review of your cyber security system you say? Read why someday, Chinese hackers may be able to construct their own Aegis class destroyer. Duly noted that that the article states it could also be North Korean hackers. How about, both?
