Attempted hack of Jacksonville Aviation Authority disclosed

WJXT in Florida is reporting (video) that the FBI is actively investigating an attempted hack of the Jacksonville Aviation Authority on November 26, shortly before Thanksgving.

In a statement to the news station, JAA indicated that it believes the attack was unsuccessful and will continue to believe so unless it hears otherwise from the FBI, but have undertaken to strengthen their system, and will continue that effort in a multi-year project.

JAA declined to answer any of the news station’s questions or to disclose any documents relating to the breach, and the FBI didn’t respond at all to the station’s inquiries, but JAA did state that the attack appeared to come from a foreign source.
