It’s not just the MoD that has IT systems that aren’t delivering.
Coca-Cola IT system secret cyber attack
Coca-Cola’s IT system was hacked by Chinese hackers in 2009, but the cyber attack was kept secret until 2012.
The breach occurred after deputy president for the Pacific region, Paul Etchells, opened a malicious link in an email that installed keyloggers and other forms of malware.
According to an internal document, seen by Bloomberg, the hackers were then able to breach the company’s files and pilfered internal emails using full remote control access, resulting in a system failure.
When it was queried why the attack was not disclosed, Coca-Cola told the BBC: "Our company’s security team manages security risks in conjunction with the appropriate security and law enforcement organisations around the world.
"As a matter of practice, we do not comment on security matters."
