Hackers penetrate South Korean missile manufacturer
Blueprints stolen (possibly)
Black hat hackers were able to steal information from a South Korean missile manufacturer after planting malicious code on the company's computer system, according to news reports.
According to the country's National Security Research Institute, the code was installed on the computer network of LIGNex1 Hyundai Heavy Industries, a manufacturer of guided missiles, ground-to-air weapons, war ships, and submarines.
"The research institute suspects the culprits are Chinese or North Korean hackers but doesn't know specifically what information they stole," an official said. "In the worst case, the blueprints of missiles and Aegis ship could have been stolen."
