Details surface on what data was stolen from the Pentagon

In a previous article on Neowin we reported on the data that was stolen from the Pentagon. Now, new details have surfaced about what information was taken. For the most part there is very little to worry about.

A spokesperson for Lockeed Martin explains that "They'll have very little information other than how you maintain the aircraft". Its comforting to know that the most sensitive of data is kept far away from the reaches of the internet and that only things such as manuals and other non sensitive data are kept on network accessible computers.

Cyber threats are growing and are consistently become one of the highest threats to any nation's national security. It's becoming harder and harder to track down hackers that are becoming quite effective at hiding their true locations; it could be a state sponsored hack or simply a group of individuals with a grudge, either way they are both a threat to be concerned about.
