One of Bombardier’s confidential documents stolen by pirates.
Among the documents stolen, we find in particular an illustration of the GlobalEye military surveillance aircraft of the Swedish company Saab as well as recent technical documents on an electromagnetic signal interception aircraft developed by the British firm Marshall Aerospace and Defense. .
Both aircraft are heavily modified Bombardier Global 6000 business jets.
The hackers also allegedly got their hands on at least one technical drawing of a radar antenna from Italian equipment manufacturer Leonardo, the trade publication The Register revealed.
“It is impossible to say what the implications of the incident might be. It depends largely on the nature of the data that has been extracted and whether or not there are national security concerns for some of Bombardier’s customers, ”commented Brett Callow, Cyber Threat Analyst for the firm. ‘Emsisoft antivirus.
In a statement released on Monday, Bombardier said the computer attack had “limited consequences.”
Still, “personal information and other confidential data” affecting customers, suppliers and around 100 Bombardier employees in Costa Rica “have been compromised,” the company admitted.
“Bombardier enlisted the services of cybersecurity and forensic professionals who independently confirmed that the company’s security controls were effective in limiting the scope and extent of the incident,” said specified the aircraft manufacturer.
Hackers gained access to Bombardier documents through Accellion’s file-sharing application FTA, which was the victim of a massive attack that also affected other users, including the firm of American attorneys Jones Day and the Australian stock market policeman.
In a statement, Accellion said that FTA, “a 20-year-old product nearing the end of its life”, had been “the target of a sophisticated cyber attack”.
