Hackers have breached jet fighter program

A defense official says cyber hackers nearly two years ago breached a high-tech jet fighter program developed for the Pentagon by Lockheed Martin Corp. but classified information was not compromised.

Steps were taken to secure the computer systems, but officials would not provide details about the attacks. The defense official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the attacks.

The cyber spying revelations come as the White House is poised to release its review on the nation’s cyber security. There have been increasingly frequent warnings that the nation’s networks are at risk and repeatedly are being probed by foreign governments, criminals or other groups.

    I read that they downloaded TERAbytes of data, so what exactly was taken if not classified? Manuals maybe. Those gov’t pubs get longer every year.
