NORSYS, NATO’s secret computer system hacked.

Im posting this, as I read it as a small note in the paper version of VG on Monday 15. of June 2009 and that I cant find any digital reference to it, nor to NORSYS on the Internet.

Tom Bakkeli is the author of the article in the newspaper version. He has very deep knowledge about the Norwegian military and its secrecy.

Forsvarets sikkerhetstjeneste (FOST) alleged prevented a catastrophe, as an alleged foreign government hacker had entered NORSYS, NATO’s secret computer system.

Defense minister Anne-Grete Strøm-Erichsen confirms that in one occasion, FOST prevented serious damages to NORSYS. Under a NATO-exercise three years ago, FOST discovered that someone had successfully entered NORSYS.

Anne-Grete Strøm-Erichsen does not want to comment on when and where, nor who was behind the breach.

Readers comment (Unconfirmed):
NORSYS is not equal to “NATO’s secret Network”.
