Ex-military chief says a cyber attack on UK Defence Institute caused "significant" damage.

According to a retired senior British military source, a cyber attack on the UK's Defence Academy in March caused "substantial" damage.

The attack compelled the Defence Academy to reconstruct its network, according to Air Marshal Edward Stringer, who served as director-general of joint force development and spearheaded the military's thinking on the future of warfare.

Cybercriminals or a hostile state such as China, Russia, Iran, or North Korea, he claimed, could have been the perpetrators.

Every year, the school at Shrivenham, Oxfordshire, educates 28,000 military people, diplomats, and civil officers.
