Details of a Swedish-Canadian observation aircraft program were reportedly published on the dark web by hackers after entering the system of the Canadian vehicle manufacturer Bombardier. With the U.S. Air Force’s E-3 Sentry airspace controller and the U.S. Navy’s E-2D Advanced Hawkeye reconnaissance aircraft, the design of roughly one category of spy aircraft known as the Globaleye was thus quite compromised.
Malicious coders have reportedly discovered a zero-day vulnerability in the Accellion FTA web server software used by companies to store and share large files that cannot be emailed to customers and employees. The hackers then posted the details of Globaleye on the “CLOP ^ _- LEAKS” website, which lists the companies that do not pay the ransom.
Globaleye combines the Bombardier 6000 business aircraft and the Saab Erieye aerial radar sensor has all the benefits. It is designed to act as an eye and ear for the Air Force. It can detect enemy planes, missiles and drones over long distances. Erieye also allows pilots to fly with radars turned off, making them harder to detect.
The Independent calls the stolen files “globaleye’s” detailed plans “, while ZDNet calls the stolen material” various Bombardier aircraft and aircraft parts planning documents “. According to Bombardier, however, “it contained personal and other confidential information about employees, customers and suppliers”.
Globaleye has so far attracted a great deal of interest from the United Arab Emirates.
