Booz Allen Confirms Cyber Attack

Consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton has confirmed reports of hackers attacking the firm and extracting information that was posted online.

The firm said it is conducting an investigation to determine the nature and the extent of the cyber attack that involved the theft of “certain data files.”

“At this time, we do not believe that the attack extended beyond data pertaining to a learning management system for a government agency,” a release from the firm said.

Booz Allen earlier this week tweeted it typically does not comment on specific threats or actions taken against its systems. However, in the more recent statement on the corporate website, the firm said given the publicity about the incident, “we believe it is important to set out our preliminary understanding of the facts.”
