He said American officials on Friday that hackers working for the Chinese government blocking computers private contractor, a US Navy U. S. Navy and stole a large amount of stored data classified as highly sensitive according to their war under the sea, including details about the schemes related to the use of anti-ship missile supersonic within us submarines, where it continues the process of investigation led by the Navy and the assistance of the Federal Bureau of investigation FBI
There was a hack, which published details of the newspaper The Washington Post, in the months of January and February, so this exercise resulted in the theft of more than 614 GB of data, were not disclosed contractor that was hacked, but information indicates that he worked with the centre of maritime war under the sea, which is about a research group working on the development of submarines and weapons underwater.
Said Daniel day Daniel Day, a spokesman for the Navy said in a statement: “we won’t know the incidents or specific weak points depending on the grounds of operations,” he added “according to federal regulations, there are procedures in place to require companies to inform the government when an accident e negative effects, actual or potential on their networks, which contain confidential information and unauthorized, it would be inappropriate to discuss further details at this time”.
Noted a spokesman for the Chinese Embassy to Embassy, don’t know anything about the process of hacking that have been reported, adding that the Chinese government firmly supports cyber security and firmly opposes and combats all forms of cyber attacks and the violation of the law, said U.S. officials, the hackers targeted the undertaker working in the centre of the Maritime war under the sea, a Kiev military based in Newport, Newport in Rhode Island, Rhode Island, without specifying the identity of the Contractor.
Data included information about the project is known as the “sea Dragon” Sea Dragon, which is part of the initiative of the US Department of Defense Pentagon to adapt the techniques to the current U.S. military for new applications, where they described the project, which cost more than $ 300 million since the year 2015, that strain the capacity of the attack of the subversive work to integrate the weapon system is located with the platform and freely list, is scheduled to begin tested under water in the month of September/September next.
Also included stolen information schemes development of anti-ship missile faster than sound, it is not clear whether those plans are the same or concerning the participation of the sea Dragon, it was supposed to be a review of the rocket for use in American submarines by 2020, in addition to the data signal sensor, and a radio room within the submarine-related systems, encryption, and electronic warfare unit of the development of Naval submarines.
The process of penetration of this light on the seat constant faced by the federal government, not only in relation to defending itself against intrusions, but also in making the contractors are able to save sensitive data as company Booz Allen Hamilton contracting with the Ministry of Defence last year to problems relating to files account belonging to the Pentagon on a server Amazon without password protection, while leaving another million of the social media group set up by the Pentagon on the server is not protected.
Likely to commit this hack to penetrate the Office of Personnel Management and Woods Hole, a research organization specializing in Ocean Sciences sometimes cooperate with the U.S. Navy, where the information indicates that penetration is also linked to the Chinese government, resulting in the leaking of personal information of up to 25 million workers and contractors to the Feds.
It should be noted the leadership of pirates linked to the Chinese government previously to penetrate and steal data on hundreds of mechanical systems and software, but this process is the largest and the most sensitive among the processes that have been implemented in the context of cyber warfare escalating between the United States and China.
China is using the data is extremely sensitive, U.S. Navy
