Bill Sweetman writes, under the great headline:
The Wall Street Journal reports today that part of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program’s computer network has been penetrated and compromised, most likely by China-based intelligence operatives.
Key points from the story: the intruders accessed terabytes of data; they used tools that made it impossible to determine exactly what they compromised; repeated break-ins have been detected from 2007 and 2008. Also, at least two break-ins were detected in partner nations, one of those being Turkey.
I hope to God that we’ve got guys in the NSA, CIA, and DIA leaving “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” in the firmware of the J-11 and Su-35 to let these people know that we’re not to be trifled with.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
