The U.S. Navy and the FBI are investigating a massive cyber breach that compromised the network of an unidentified Navy contractor, as Chinese hackers allegedly stole large amounts of data related to undersea warfare, including top-secret programs to develop supersonic anti-ship missiles for submarines by 2020, according to American officials, The Washington Post reported.

The data breach occurred earlier this year as the investigation is still ongoing. The officials said that the contractor was working at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, a full-spectrum research, development, and testing arm of the Navy. The warfare center focuses on submarines, autonomous underwater systems, and offensive and defensive weapons systems associated with undersea warfare.

I want to know who the contractor was and what the consequences to this company will be for allowing this breach. I would like a competent agency involved in this investigation: the FBI no longer qualifies as an investigative agency. Why is the Navy developing supersonic missiles instead of hypersonic missiles like China and Russia has? But then the source of this information is the Washington Post.

    Who do we have to thank for that? Microsoft? NSA and CIA backdoors?
