The attackers’ message about gaining access to the company’s network appeared on one of the forums. As evidence, a link to an archive with demo files was attached.

The total amount of stolen data was estimated by hackers at 60 GB. “The uploaded data contains confidential and confidential information about your company’s employees who took part in the development of closed military projects MBDA (PLANCTON, CRONOS, CA SIRIUS, EMADS, MCDS, B1NT, etc..) and about your company’s commercial activities in the interests of the EU Ministry of Defense (design documentation for air defense systems, missile systems and coastal defense systems, drawings, presentations, video and photo (3D) materials, contract agreements and correspondence with other companies Rampini Carlo, Netcomgroup, Rafael, Thales, ST Electronics, etc.”, the hackers wrote.

Adrastea is ready to discuss the cost of the stolen data array. MBDA has not yet commented on the incident.

MBDA manufactures a wide variety of missiles and related installations. For example, the company produces air-to-air missiles AIM-132 ASRAAM (short range, with IR guidance), MBDA Meteor (long range), MICA (medium range, with IR and radar guidance). The company’s product range also includes surface-to-air missiles – Mistral (MANPADS), MBDA Aster (medium and long range), Aspide Mk.1 (medium range), Sea Wolf (SAM), anti-ship (Exocet, Otomat, Marte, Sea Skua) and anti-tank (ERYX, Brimstone, HOT) missiles.

Patching for Inception vulnerability in AMD processors can reduce performance

Fixing the recently found AMD Inception vulnerability, as shown by the first tests, leads to a huge decrease in performance.

Patching for Inception vulnerability in AMD processors can reduce performance by more than two times

The authors of the Phoronix portal tested the AMD Epyc 7763 CPU with a new firmware designed to fix the vulnerability, and found that in a number of tasks there was no impact on performance, but in some the drop turned out to be simply huge: up to 54%, that is, more than twice. Most often, a significant decrease in performance is recorded in applications working with databases, code compilation, design and image processing.

However, for many users, the most noticeable change will be that Microsoft Defender has learned to detect pirated versions of the OS, reset activation and block the AutoKMS (Key Management Service), which hackers and pirates used to activate Windows for free. This is one of the most popular tools for bypassing the Microsoft licensing system.
