Some thoughts on espionage, hacking, and the defense industrial base:

The latest breach in the F-35 program has come out of Australia, where a subcontractor reportedly lost unclassified data on the fighter (and the P-8 maritime patrol aircraft) to a sophisticated hacking operation. The Australian government does not seem overly concerned about the incident, and the data does not apparently disclose anything particularly critical about the program. Nevertheless, the breach illustrates the new reality of how military technology spreads around the world.
