    Sensitive US military documents, including training materials for the MQ-9A Reaper drone and an operations manual for the M1 Abrams tank, were recently available for sale on the Dark Web. A single hacker with apparently moderate technical skills accessed one set of the leaked documents from the computer of a captain at 432d Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Reaper AMU OIC, at the Creech AFB in Nevada, says intelligence firm Recorded Future. The data that was stolen included Reaper maintenance books and the list of airmen assigned to the military drone program at the base.
