French Aerospace Industry Group Denies Cyber Attack

A French aerospace industry group targeted by a cyber attack using a flaw in recent versions of Internet Explorer said its website had not been directly attacked but that hackers had created a fake address similar to its own. U.S. researchers said a defect in Microsoft Corp's IE 10 Web browser, used to attack visitors to U.S. military veterans website, appeared to have been used earlier against French aerospace industry group GIFAS.
