An Internet security company claims that Iran has taken advantage of a
computer security breach to obtain engineering and communications
information about Marine One, President Barack Obama's helicopter,
according to a report [1] by WPXI, NBC's affiliate in Pittsburgh.

Tiversa, headquartered in Cranberry Township, Pa., reportedly discovered a
security breach that led to the transfer of military information to an
Iranian IP address, according to WPXI. The information is said to include
planned engineering upgrades, avionic schematics, and computer network
information.

The channel quoted the company's CEO, Bob Boback, who said Tiversa found a
file containing the entire blueprints and avionics package for Marine One.

"What appears to be a defense contractor in Bethesda, Md., had a
file-sharing program on one of their systems that also contained highly
sensitive blueprints for Marine One," Boback told WPXI.

Tiversa makes products that monitor the sharing of files online. A
representative for the company was not immediately available for comment.
