It recently turned out that aerospace EADS and German steelmaker ThyssenKrupp suffered major attacks by Chinese hackers last year. The media reports confirmed that the cyber attackers’ efforts were part of a wider trend of increasingly significant hacker attacks to target German corporations.
In the meantime, EADS did confirm that cyber attacks took place, claiming in the interview that they were “ordinary” attacks. At the moment, the corporation was working closely with the local authorities to solve the problem. If you don’t know what EADS is manufacturing, it would be enough to say that it is the parent company of Airbus and one of the largest defence contractors in the European Union. For example, EADS is known for being responsible for such projects as the Eurofighter Typhoon, Eurocopter Tiger and for having strong connections to Dassault Aviation, the manufacturers of the Rafale fighter jet.
In its turn, ThyssenKrupp also confirmed the cyber attack, pointing out that it took place in the United States and came from a Chinese IP address. ThyssenKrupp didn’t reveal whether the attackers managed to steal any sensitive data. Meanwhile, the company is known as one of Europe’s largest conglomerates, with operations spread out along 670 companies across the globe.
Overall, the country’s Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution has recorded more than 1,000 hacker attacks from foreign secret services last year. Most part of them targeted politicians involved with energy and finance and large multinational corporations like the ones mentioned above.
