SAN FRANCISCO - Hackers who recently broke into Lockheed
Martin's security network used data stolen from an EMC security division and the
company offered to replace millions of potentially compromised "SecurID"
Lockheed Martin, the Pentagon's No. 1 arms supplier and
the US government's top information technology provider, was attacked last
month by hackers, underscoring a growing threat to US national
RSA, which makes the SecurID keys, said in a letter published
on its website that it has confirmed information taken from it in March was used
in the attack on Lockheed Martin.
EMC had previously warned that
information stolen from RSA related to its SecurIDs and has now offered to
replace the SecurID keys of any customers who ask, a spokesman told Reuters.
