A US Defense contractor has reportedly leaked classified military information about Marine One, President Barack Obama’s helicopter.
Triversa, an Internet security monitor headquartered in Pennsylvania, reported late Saturday that a US Defense contractor’s errant use of a file-sharing network has disclosed sensitive Marine One information, including ‘entire blueprints, engineering upgrades, avionic schematics’.
“What appears to be a defense contractor in Bethesda, MD had a file sharing program on one of their systems that also contained highly sensitive blueprints for Marine One,” Boback said. Tiversa also found information detailing the cost of Marine One.
