NASA says it was hacked 13 times last year


www.reuters.com

NASA said hackers broke into its computer systems 13 times last year, stealing employee credentials and gaining access to mission-critical projects in breaches that could compromise U.S. national security.

He said they gained full system access, which allowed them to modify, copy, or delete sensitive files, create user accounts for mission-critical JPL systems and upload hacking tools to steal user credentials and compromise other NASA systems. They were also able to modify system logs.

The laptop stealing incident and now this. When will NASA decide to take further action into protecting sensitive information?

Hackers from Chinese based IP's hacked into NASA and were able to gain access to mission files and much, much more! I wonder what they found? Probably just average stuff considering it was 'easy' to hack.

If they have something to hide, why are the hackers not finding it.....? Your flawed logic works both ways.

We should wonder why NASA is voluntary reporting this in public. Doesn't make sense to me. Maybe an "involuntary disclosure" is coming.

Nasa has more security problems than 13 a year thats for sure.

"On Thursday, NASA’s inspector general released a report revealing that between 2010 and 2011, the agency had more than 5,000 computer security incidents. An ongoing investigation has revealed that one such attack was on its Jet Propulsion Lab by Chinese hackers, according to Fox News."

If i am correct. NASA is a publicly funded organization? National Security shouldnt have much to do with any thing?

nasa is really stupid if they have "smoking guns" on computers connected to the internet....so i think its "national security" and "important" only according to nasa, not what we on ATS concider important...

So what, they just discovered this happened?

Or did it just happen yesterday?

Seriously, no one else finds the timing of this a little odd?

EDIT

And did the hacks all happen at once?

Why didn't we know when the first hack happened? Not first, what about the 5th...8th? 10th?

Nasa - Jack Parsons legacy . . .

JP and L Ron Hubbard (scientology) and Aleister Crowley performing rituals to the anti-christ

Now they are getting hacked 13 times in 2011 ....

11 and 13 are very important numbers when artistically creating change in the material & spirit worlds.

Maybe they all got drunk off of some pan-galactic gargle blasters and needed an excuse for the mess they made?

WHY is NASA even running 'mission critical' stuff on the regular internet anyway? WHY are they not using the secure SiPRNET or other DoD separate networks?

Are they really this stupid? Smells fishy to me
