Hackers Break Into Pentagon's Fighter Jet Project

I only have one question about this news item...why in the world are ANY computers in the Pentagon (linked to top secret projects) connected to the internet? Doesn’t that seem crazy to you?

The stolen files all relate to the design of the Joint Strike Fighter and its electronic systems, the Wall Street Journal reported, saying they could be used to help defend against the jet. However, the most sensitive files were not compromised since they are stored on computers that are not connected to the Internet, the report said.

yeah no kidding...its pretty dumb to think that even with all the firewalls and security measures that it is 100% safe....the only way to truly be 100% safe is keep it off the network....true, it will make access a lot more difficult..but at least it keeps others from getting their hands on it
