German submaker reveals it was hit by ‘massive’ cyberattack early this year

ThysenKrupp, a German conglomerate that produces submarines for Israel’s Navy, announced Thursday that its computer systems were attacked in the beginning of the year and that a great amount of technical and other data was stolen.

The company’s statement said the computers of its marine systems unit, which manufactures submarines and other vessels, were not attacked. However, DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources report that there is a major risk of a much deeper penetration of the company’s databases and the implanting of Trojan horses or other malware that could also steal information from the marine systems unit’s computer network.
