Chinese hackers have got the access to design blueprints of many of nation’s highly sensitive advanced weapons systems. The development came into picture through the report prepared by the Defense Department and government and defense industry officials, reports The Washington Post.
In the list of weapons whose designs are compromised apart from others includes advanced Patriot missile system, the Navy’s Aegis ballistic missile defense systems, the F/A-18 fighter jet, the V-22 Osprey, the Black Hawk helicopter and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
The report was confidential and prepared by the Defense Science Board who acts as a senior advisory group consisting of government and civilian experts.
The Defense Science Board didn’t accuse the Chinese of stealing these designs, but says that the designs of more than two dozen systems were compromised, according to the Washington Post report.
