An unknown cyber criminal (or group of them) has broken into computer systems housing information about the U.S. Defense Department's $300 billion Joint Strike Fighter project, the Wall Street Journal reports today, citing a number of "current and former government officials familiar with the attacks."
It's unclear how much damage the attacks have caused to the jet-fighter project, given that the cyber intruders were able to download "sizable amounts of data" related to the aircraft's (also called the F-35 Lightning II) in-flight maintenance diagnostics but weren't able to access the most sensitive information, related to flight controls and sensors (which is stored on computers not hooked up to the Internet), according to the Journal. The Air Force is currently testing prototypes of the aircraft, said to be the most expensive ever commissioned by the Pentagon.
