Chinese Hack Into Companies for Aircraft Technology



The reports of the US department have it that for over 5 years beginning in 2010 this hack-steal drill under the guidance of the officers which was related to a turbofan engine had been going on. When the hacks took place an aerospace organization which was controlled by the government was already thriving on the idea of a similar jet engine.


Being privy to such sensitive information would aid the Chinese a lot in building up their own not very dissimilar jet engines without having to participate and capitalize in the tedious process of research and development.


Companies in Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Arizona, Oregon, and the United Kingdom were affected at large by the aforementioned hackers especially corporations like Safran SA of France which was working in partnership with a US established organization and Capstone Turbine.
