China blamed for Ministry of Defence attack that exposed military personnel data

A Ministry of Defence (MoD) data breach that exposed personal data belonging to UK military personnel has been attributed to a compromised third-party payroll system.

The data, relating to an unknown number of people, is believed to include the names and bank details of both current and past members of the Royal Navy, British Army, and Royal Air Force as well as a small number of addresses. The database is not linked to the MoD’s own systems.
