Cyberattack affected US defense contractor over three-year period

Quote:
Most, if not all, of the intellectual property of a U.S. defense contractor whose forte includes spy satellites and drone aircraft, was apparently compromised over a three-year period by Chinese hackers.

Traces of the hackers' work was found in many of the divisions of the contractor, QinetiQ (pronounced "kinetic") and across most of their product lines, a former senior vice president at Verizon Terremark told Bloomberg News.

Bloomberg reported that QinetiQ breach may have compromised information vital to national security, including the deployment and capabilities of the U.S. combat helicopter fleet.
