A report from the Department of Defense (DoD) Inspector General has revealed that the Pentagon failed to secure different 3D printed military designs. These include blueprints for protective body armor, tactical vehicle gear, weapons systems brackets and prosthetic body parts. If these designs aren’t secured properly, it could open the door for attackers to be able to access them, make changes, and compromise the network as well. The Pentagon claims the systems were miscategorized and they were unaware they were connected to the internet, this caused them to skip risk assessment checks, which are otherwise required.
