    US government contractor Exigent Software Technology has admitted that unidentified hackers broke into a restricted military computer system and stole the source codes controlling satellite and missile guidance systems. Hackers got away with two thirds of the code when the target computer at the Naval Research Lab in Washington was attacked on Christmas Eve. The military detected the break-in three days later.

    The theft was made public when Swedish police searched the servers of internet service provider Carbonide on suspicion that hackers used the company's Freebox Web email service to distribute the code to others.
