A military server has been hacked and confidential documents have been leaked onto torrent websites. There are high res scans of passports and many documents including e-mail passwords of a military website. Will this ever be picked up by the mainstream media? They seem to be ignoring this event.

Here is a Youtube video linked in one of the documents. This is Iraq.

Goddamn all this net neutrality. We need to put limitations on the internet to stop those assholes from downloading free musi-- I mean, classified government information.

Britam Defence is not military. According to their website they're a "risk management and training consultancy", though with activities including basic and specialist training for military units there will obviously be connections to the armed forces of several countries.

Yup, I was just about to call bullshit on the premise of the OP. No (modern) military in the world is actually feeling so absolutely and 100% certain about the security of any part of their internal networks to knowingly mingle them with the Wide Open Internet, that's just asking for trouble. Most regulations in fact prohibit the two networks ever converging on a single node.

If it even occurs in practice to an actual military server, it can only be due to negligence, and will certainly trigger a "red alert"-like response.

A merc company OTOH...just like any corporate website/webserver, I guess. Of course, this has implications for "real" armies too if they share sensitive information with PMCs that have less than ideal net security...

Consultancies working for the State can be a means of State privatization, deriving policy deliberation to private companies instead of public debate, so while they're not the State or the military, the info they manage can be about as sensitive as secret State information.

Well, to be fair a PMC is more likely to do the grunt work of pulling the trigger, rather than plan and handle the geopolitical consequences of their activities. In other words, they might be trusted with tactical information ("strike there and then"), but they're not likely to receive full strategical disclosure. After all, mercs ask few questions ;-)
