WSJ: Hackers Breach Joint Strike Fighter Project

Citing unnamed current and former government officials, The Wall Street Journal reported that hackers compromised the security of the $300 billion Joint Strike Fighter project. The breach resulted in un-authorized access and copying of several terabytes of data related to key portions of the aircraft, including its design and electronics, according to the article. The Wall Street Journal article further places the breach in the context of other recently reported hacks, such as intrusion of the nation's electrical grid.
