Britain’s Ministry of Defence contractor Interserve has been hacked.
This hack leaked the details of up to 100,000 of past and current employees, including payment information and details of their next of kin.
Interserve has 53000 employees as of now.
The National Cyber Security Center confirmed it is helping Interserve with the aftermath of the reported security breach.
Within the UK Interserve also maintains the vital and secretive MoD bunkers at Corsham, coyly referred to as “the cutting edge global communications hub for the Ministry of Defence”.
Corsham is, in fact, the home of the MoD’s Global Operations Security Control Centre, as well as the Joint Security Co-ordination Centre, plus a Cyber Security Operations Centre.
