Airbus may have new problems to deal with now.
An A380 had three cable intentionally cut while it was still on the assembly line while it was being outfitted with electrical equipment.

They don't say what the cables were for.

Airbus spokeswoman Barbara Kracht confirmed the incident, first reported in the local newspaper La Depeche du Midi.

The three cables on the superjumbo were cut sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning, said Jacques Rocca, communications officer for Airbus France, a division of Airbus.

"What was found leads us to believe that this was more of a malicious act than an accident," Rocca said. "But the term 'sabotage' is strong and inappropriate."

That's pretty worrying that someone is possibly sabotaging the planes while they're being built.
It's time to start paying close attention to the backgrounds of their employees and start asking questions.

That is quite shocking, like you say all employees should undergo full vetting.

Its certainly a good job that this was found almost immediately (i assume) before anything worse could come from it.

Maybe the there was a factory tour with people from Seattle there that day !? (Joke)
