Top secret information about Australia’s military hacked

Looks like someone hacked a small mom and pop defense contractor in Australia.

However what they stole was information on F-35, C130, P-8, JDAM and some naval vessels. Some of the information stolen was very detailed according to a manager.


TOP secret technical information about new fighter jets, navy vessels, and surveillance aircraft has been stolen from an Australian defence contractor.

Dan Tehan, the minister in charge of cyber security, on Tuesday confirmed the hacking of an unnamed contractor but did not reveal specific details.




The hacker in the attack was named ALF. Wonder if he liked cats.

I feel sorry for the contractor. Cyber security isn't easy and with just 1 guy doing IT work it's pretty rough to keep up. IT security is expensive and I don't see too many mom and pop shops having the ability to keep with the times.


Here's another article.

Looks like 30 gigs of data was stolen. And had access to the data for 3 months.

There was nothing classified that was taken or acquired it has been reported, and the incident occured last year some time.

Wtf is mom and pop?
Top secret? According to the government it was not classified information that was stolen. Where’s the top secret part? Besides your sensationalism..

And that’s not the Alf they are referring to.
I know you’re American and you think the universe revolves around your crappy violent culture, but the Alf being referred to is a fictional character on an Australian soap opera.

Typical American though thinking everything is about them.

There are people in the government that have full time jobs making stuff up for hackers to find and to trail them.

Just saying

Hi ALF!!

It's right here according news.com.au. And it's not my sensationalism it's your news. Argue with them about it.

I realize that. However I was making a joke. Apparently it was lost upon you. I have good a friend living in Australia. He tells me Australians are usually funny, usually very nice easy going people and not rude at all.

My favourite people on the internet are people who say they have friends here or there or their friends are this ethnicity or that.
