Robinson+Cole Data Privacy + Security Insider

It is being reported that a hacker is attempting to sell classified U.S. Air Force documents related to the MQ-9 drone program on the dark web. The reports state that a single hacker with moderate technical skills was able to infiltrate the computer of a captain at the 432nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Reaper AMU OIC to obtain highly sensitive information about the capabilities of the drone program. The hacker seeks payment of up to $200 for the information.

Equally concerning is the fact that the hacker responsible for the drone program information theft also has indicated having possession of additional military documents from an unidentified officer.
