F-35 secrets stolen from UK air force in ‘honeytrap plot’: report

“The Royal Air Force has confirmed that information about the UK’s highly sensitive F-35 fighter jet program has been leaked, The Daily Mail reported over the weekend. The report described an ‘audacious honeytrap plot,’ which saw an airwoman’s social-media account hacked and then used to ‘sweet-talk’ servicemen into revealing details about the stealth aircraft.” An RAF memo responding to the matter stated that “this incident serves to highlight the risk of social engineering (SE) and online reconnaissance against social media profiles that disclose links to HM Forces.’”
