Bombardier has spy plane information hacked, released on the dark web – War Is Boring
Canadian aerospace manufacturer Bombardier has become a victim of a “limited cybersecurity breach,” resulting on information regarding a military spy plane being leaked to the dark web.
Detailed plans of the Saab GlobalEye spy system -which is partnered with the company’s Global 6000 jet- were posted to CLOP^_-LEAKS, a dark web site.
The airborne early warning and control platform information leak also included confidential customer, supplier and employee data.
According to the statement from Bombardier, “Forensic analysis revealed that personal and other confidential information relating to employees, customers, and suppliers was compromised.”
“Approximately 130 employees located in Costa Rica were impacted,” the company continued. “Bombardier has been proactively contacting customers and other external stakeholders whose data was potentially compromised.”
GlobalEye is considered by many to be a AEW&C system for countries on a budget, including Mexico, Brazil, Greece, Pakistan, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates and Sweden.
