The US Defense Department was the victim an apparent cyber attack in March, losing some 24,000 files to "foreign intruders," the Washington Post quoted a Pentagon official as saying on Thursday.

US Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn III stated in a speech about the Pentagon's cyber strategy that the unspecified data had been stolen from a defense contractor.

Lynn did not say who the Pentagon believes was behind the attack.
