IAI denies cyber attack claims

28 July 2014

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) released a statement on 29 July refuting a report claiming that the company lost sensitive information in a 2012 cyber attack.

"The information reported regarding the leakage of sensitive information is incorrect," the company said in a statement. "The publications refer to an attempt to penetrate the company's civilian non-classified internet network, which allegedly occurred several years ago. IAI's cyber security systems operate in accordance with the most rigorous requirements and also in this case they were proven to be effective."

The original story was published by the krebsonsecurity.com website and cited the intelligence company Cyber Engineering Services Inc (CyberESI) as saying that hackers managed to access the corporate networks of three Israeli defence companies between October 2011 and August 2012.
