China suspected of massive cyberattack on database of UK armed forces personnel

Member of Parliaments will be told today of a massive data breach involving the UK Ministry of defence, targeting service personnel.

The government will not name the country involved, but information gathered by journalists and opinion understands this to be China.

The Chinese state is to be accused of two or three attempts at hacking MoD employees including their personnel.

This cyberattack was on a payroll system with current service personnel and some veterans. It is largely names and bank details that have been exposed. However, all salaries will be paid this month.

China's foreign ministry said it "firmly opposes and fights all forms of cyber attacks" and "rejects the use of this issue politically to smear other countries".

A Conservative MP and former soldier- Tobias Ellwood, explained that China "was probably looking at the financially vulnerable with a view that they may be coerced in exchange for cash".

Defence Secretary Grant Shapps will make a statement to the Commons today, he will set out a "multi-point plan" which will include action to protect affected service men and women.

The MoD hopes serving personnel will not be concerned about their safety. They will be provided with advice and support.

The contractor system is not connected to the main MoD computer systems and has been taken down with a review launched.

The MoD has been working at speed over the last 72 hours to understand the scale of the hack after it was discovered in recent days.

More information will be provided as facts unfold……
