I doubt that it would be possible to keep it secret, since there would have been numerous witnesses on the ship in question, and keeping a secret among that many people just isnt feasible.
Ever hear of the Liberty?

I don’t absolutely know if it’s true, but there were several stories back then about Chinese modifications of the shoulder held missiles of that time, which could have reached the required altitude.
So I don’t think it can absolutely be said that a terrorist missile can be ruled out on that basis.
