Lockheed attack highlights rise in cyber espionage
May 30, 2011 By CHIP CUTTER and LOLITA C. BALDOR , Associated Press

Lockheed Martin on Saturday, May 28, 2011 admitted it was the recent target of a "significant and tenacious" cyber attack, although the defense contractor and the Department of Homeland Security insist the hack was thwarted before any critical data was stolen.
This cyber attack didn't go after people playing war games on their PlayStations. It targeted a company that helps the U.S. military do the real thing.


This is real hacking and a real problem, Sony was just a stupid attempt to screw people and a company over. This is where the real hacking takes place, quite and barely noticeable. Fortunately they caught this one

:confused: where else are they going to keep it? they need to stop putting information that is valuable on networks that are connected to the internet and keep it all on separate intranets that are not connected to the internet in anyway

Actually Lockheed does keep all the sensitive material on an exclusive link between them and the Pentagon that is not conected in any way to the internet. The hackers that got in to their system got into an area that Lockheed wanted them to go into...basically a mousetrap for hackers.

ah, I figured it was some kind of trap, I don't expect LM to be that stupid, I was referring to companies in general.
