Killnet claims to have breached Lockheed Martin

Russian hacker group Killnet claims to have launched a DDoS attack on the aerospace and defense giant Lockheed Martin.

The Moscow Times first reported that the Pro-Russia hacker group Killnet is claiming responsibility for a recent DDoS attack that hit the aerospace and defense giant Lockheed Martin.

The Killnet group also claims to have stolen data from a Lockheed Martin employee and threatened to share it.

The group has been active since March, it launched DDoS attacks against governments that expressed support to Ukraine, including Italy, Romania, Moldova, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Norway, and Latvia.

In a video shared by the group on Telegram, the group claimed to have stolen the personal information of the Lockheed Martin employees, including names, email addresses, phone numbers, and pictures.

The group also shared two spreadsheets containing a message in Russian:

“If you have nothing to do, you can email Lockheed Martin Terrorists – photos and videos of the consequences of their manufactured weapons! Let them realize what they create and what they contribute to.” (Tanslated with Google).

At this time it is impossible to determine the real source of these data. Lockheed Martin is aware of the Killnet claims, but it did not comment on them.
