By now, you’ve probably heard about the huge data breaches at Target, Home Depot, and more.
Now it seems that the data breaches have been traced back to the same data analysis firm that is supposed to track them.
Data breach tracker CrowdStrike, which also works with the U.S. Department of Defense, has confirmed that it was the same company responsible for the Target breach, which was reported last year.
This is the second time in recent months that CrowdStrike has acknowledged the same firm was responsible for an attack on the Pentagon.
It was first mentioned in September when the Pentagon announced it was compromised.
The company said the breach involved a breach of the U-2 spy plane, which is the Us military’s most sophisticated reconnaissance aircraft.
But CrowdStrike was quick to deny the claim.
“The U-S-2 [spy plane] was not compromised,” the company said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.
“We have not been able to confirm the claim made in this post by a U.s. official.”
CrowdStrike did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
According to a cybersecurity firm’s report from last year, the firm said the data breach at the Pentagon could have impacted over 40 million victims worldwide.
That report concluded that the Pentagon was the largest data breach in history.
The report also noted that the US. government had been hacked by hackers working for the Russian government.
The cybersecurity firm, FireEye, also found that Russian military intelligence had access to a trove of private emails belonging to former Secretary of State John Kerry.
“As a result of these breaches, the U,S.
has lost significant operational capability to counter the Russian threat,” the report stated.
“These attacks may also pose significant vulnerabilities for the U.,S.
military in the future.”
It added that the hackers had “successfully penetrated into an enterprise network used by government, business, and defense organizations worldwide.”
It’s not clear exactly how the hackers accessed the private data, but the report noted that Crowdstrike believed it was likely the government’s network, known as the Global Information Infrastructure (GI).
In a statement, CrowdStrike said that it has “no knowledge of any breaches at the Department of the Navy, Defense, or other Department of Homeland Security organizations, nor have we been contacted by government entities regarding this issue.”
A spokeswoman for the Department told BuzzFeed News that the department has been in touch with CrowdStrike about the breach and is cooperating with the investigation.
