Hackers break into Lockheed Martin
SUNNYVALE, Calif. (KGO) -- Hackers have broken into the networks of America's biggest defense contractor - Lockheed Martin. A spokesman for Lockheed wouldn't discuss the threat specifically.
But a source close to the investigation says the hackers were able to get through security systems by creating electronic keys similar to this one made by RSA Security.
It's not clear what data, if any, was stolen, but Lockheed and other military contractors store sensitive data on future weapons systems and military technology currently used in battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.
