China Hacked U.S. Navy Contractor To Obtain Sub Secrets

WashPost: Chinese Hackers Steal Secret Navy Submarines Data U.S. Navy contractor hacked by China government; plans for anti-ship missile stolen

The data pilfered from the contractor's computer included plans on a USA project to build a supersonic anti-ship missile that can be mounted on American submarines by 2020, according to the Post, which cited an anonymous US officials.

A Washington contractor, who has yet to be named, said its files on "secret plans to develop a supersonic anti-ship missile" had been hacked.

The theft of the Navy system is hardly the largest, or the most sensitive, of the designs and systems stolen by Chinese hackers over the years.

Breaches that could deal a heavy blow to the U.S. military's bid to dominate the waters near the disputed islands in the South China Sea took place at least twice, in January and February this year, United States officials told The Washington Post.

"It would be inappropriate to discuss further details at this time", he said.

While the information was stored on the contractor's unclassified network, it was described as "highly sensitive" in the Post report.

He added: "There are measures in place that require companies to notify the government when a "cyber incident" has occurred that has actual or potential adverse effects on their networks that contain controlled unclassified information".

Data stolen in the breach include plans for a supersonic missile project, USA officials told the Washington Post. That includes stealing secrets from our defense contractors, ' said Talent.

According to the Post, hackers swiped 614 gigabytes of data that included information relating to sensors, submarine cryptographic systems and a little-known project called Sea Dragon.

The Pentagon has spent more than $300 million since 2015 on the Sea Dragon project, which involves adapting current Navy technology for new uses. The incident reportedly caught the attention of US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who sounded the alarm over the military contractors' security against cyber-attacks, tasking the Pentagon's inspector general's office to look into the issue.
