Default NASA Was Hacked 13 Times Last Year

NASA says it was hacked 13 times last year. The icing on the cake? Unencrypted laptops containing codes for controlling the International Space Station were also lost/stolen. Thanks to awsiemieniec for the link. 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 to conceal their actions, he said. "Our review disclosed that the intruders had compromised the accounts of the most privileged JPL users, giving the intruders access to most of JPL's networks," he said.
