WASHINGTON (Worthy News)– A Chinese hacker has been arrested for allegedly stealing highly sensitive information on the United States F-22 and F-35 fighter jet programs.
Su Bin – along with two uncharged Chinese co-conspirators – is alleged to have hacked into Boeing's corporate network as well as those of defense contractors in the US and Europe, to gain information the accused said in an email would help China "stand easily on the giant's shoulders".
Su, who had previously operated Chinese aviation firm Lode Technologies, is alleged to have broken into the Boeing network on January 2010, according to a report within a federal complaint unsealed in Los Angeles this week. The suspect and his "co-conspirators" are also alleged to have hacked the systems of other US defense contractors between 2009 and 2013 from a location in China.
The group was alleged to have stolen gigabytes of data on 32 US projects, including what investigators believed was 220MB relating to the F-22. — Source
