Aerospace corp Elbit Systems Breached, 10,000 accounts leaked
Israel is no stranger to cyber incidents and today a user on twitter has posted over 10,000 accounts from a aerospace and defense corporation Elbit Systems.
The leak was announced by @Th3Falcon earlier today and was posted to privatebin.net with over 10,000 credentials for users and administors from elbit systems.
Data in the leak contains first name and last name in both english and hebrew aswell as email addresses, encrypted passwords and other site related data such as account creation dates, toolbar status and administrator access. Total number of rows is 10,986.
Elbit has replied to my request for a statement on this incident claiming that a few months back they identified an attack.
A few months ago we identified an effort to attack an external Internet interface that facilitated communication with some of our vendors. The effort was identified and appropriately dealt with.
This doesnt really explain if this attack is linked to this data or not but either way its clear that Elbit systems has been a target for hackers recently.
