Hackers Learn More About F-35 Lightning II

So you and your allies have spent $300 billion to develop what’s hopefully the most kick-ass fighter plane ever (F-22 Raptor, eat your heart out). And by now the whole world knows about the F-35 Lighting II, the star of your Joint Strike Fighter project. Wouldn’t you try your best to secure all that detailed research & development data from the prying eyes of spies?

To their credit, the US government kept the most sensitive data off the internet. But recently, “computer spies” were able to acquire data on the design and electronics of the F-35. In the words of Reuters, “making it potentially easier to defend against the plane.”

Oh well, just watch this “uplifting” video of the F-35 testing its hover capability, while it was still competing for the Joint Strike Fighter Project. The F-35 will come in three flavors: one that takes of normally, another that can take off vertically (the capability show here), and yet another designed for aircraft carriers.
