Submission + - Raytheon under cyber attack after missile sales to (computerworld.com)

Fippy Darkpaw writes: "After Raytheon began selling missiles to Taiwan in 2006, the defense company's computer network came under a torrent of cyberattacks."

"We truly had the 'come to Jesus moment' five years ago because we decided ... to sell missiles to Taiwan," said Vincent Blake, head of cyber security at Raytheon U.K., during a panel session at the RSA security conference in London on Wednesday."

"For some reason, a country next door to Taiwan didn't really like that so they got very interested in our IPR [intellectual property rights]," he said. "We've had to very, very rapidly catch up with our own internal networks."
