Hackers Break Into Pentagon’s Fighter Jet Project

Hackers Break Into Pentagon’s Fighter Jet Project

Hackers broke into U.S. Department of Defense computers and downloaded terabytes of data containing design information about the Joint Strike Fighter, a US$300 billion stealth fighter currently under development, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The stolen files all relate to the design of the Joint Strike Fighter and its electronic systems, the Wall Street Journal reported, saying they could be used to help defend against the jet.

However, the most sensitive files were not compromised since they are stored on computers that are not connected to the Internet, the report said. The reported attack raised more questions than it answered.
