Pentagon admits 24,000 files stolen in cyberattack


The United States' Pentagon has admitted losing some 24,000 files to a cyberattack, possibly by a foreign government, last March.

US deputy defense secretary William Lynn said the data was taken from the computers of a corporate defence contractor, UK-based The Telegraph reported Friday.

Lynn said the US government had a "pretty good idea" of who the perpetrator is, the Telegraph report said. -gmanews
