The attack on the systems of the German Aeronautics and Space Center (Das Deutsche Luft- und Raumfahrtzentrum – DLR) has been discovered by the counter-intelligence service BSI. The attack is said to have infected most of the systems of the agency which deals with sensitive aeronautics and space research as well as air traffic control and defense industry. Some clues from the source code of the used malware suggest that the attack may have come from Far East, probably China. However, it may only be a disguise of the true attacker. The recent attack on Germen space establishment that was reported by Der Spiegel was perpetrated by the American NSA.
