BOEING SUPPORTS PROSECUTION IN COMPUTER HACKING CASE

 BOEING SUPPORTS PROSECUTION IN COMPUTER HACKING CASE
 SEATTLE, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) today said it fully supports the U.S. Attorney/Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigation that led to the filing of felony charges today against two suspected hackers for gaining unauthorized access to computer networks.
 Boeing alerted the FBI after the company determined someone had gained unauthorized access. Boeing then cooperated fully with the investigation.
 The company stressed that intrusion was limited due to effective security systems being in place, and that no government-classified systems were entered. Boeing also said that, based on its preliminary investigation, no company systems or data were damaged by the unauthorized access.
 "Boeing takes this type of threat very seriously," said Richard Blay, director of Boeing Security & Fire Protection. "Through our extensive computer security system, it's our goal to prevent access. But should that occur, we fully support prosecution of the persons involved."
