The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

SYD­NEY: Sen­si­tive data about Aus­tralia’s F-35 stealth fighter and P-8 sur­veil­lance air­craft pro­grammes were stolen when a de­fence sub­con­trac­tor was hacked us­ing a tool widely used by Chi­nese cy­ber crim­i­nals, of­fi­cials said yes­ter­day. The aerospace en­gi­neer­ing firm was com­pro­mised in July last year but the national cy­ber se­cu­rity agency, the Aus­tralian Sig­nals Direc­torate, only be­came aware of the breach in Novem­ber, a re­port said. – AFP
