Threat actors group known as Adrastea claims to have hacked MBDA, European missile manufacturer

Threat actors that represents themselves with the name, Adrastea, claims to have hacked MBDA. MBDA is a European multinational missile developer and manufacturer. 

Adrastea defines themselves as a group of independent cybersecurity specialists and researchers. They asserted that they found critical vulnerabilities in MBDA’s infrastructure and consequently stole about 60 GB of confidential data. 

The attackers revealed that the hacked data includes information about certain employees of the company. These employees are the ones involved in military projects, commercial activities, contract agreements and correspondence with other companies.  The military projects in which the employees took part were PLANCTON, CRONOS, CA SIRIUS, EMADS, MCDS, B1NT etc. 

Adrastea also shared a link to a password protected linked archive. This contained internal documents related to projects and correspondence. Adrastea shared this to proof their claim. 

However, the company did not disclose any further detail about the attack. Thus, it is unclear whether the threat actors have breached only one of the national divisions of the company. 

MBDA, on the other hand is a company, which was a result of merging the main French, British and Italian missile systems companies. These companies are Aérospatiale – Matra, BAE Systems and Finmeccanica (now Leonardo). The name MBDA was formed from the initials of the names of the missile companies – Matra, Bae Dynamics and Alenia.
