NASA Fails to Learn From UFO Hacker

NASA Hacker

By Jason McClellan

     The old saying goes, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” After recent comments made by NASA inspector general Paul Martin, the finger of shame might need to be pointed in NASA’s direction.

The Daily Mail quotes Martin as recently stating that NASA is “vulnerable to computer incidents that could have a severe to catastrophic effect on agency assets, operations, and personnel.” The specific serious vulnerabilities are identified by Martin: “Six computer servers associated with IT assets that control spacecraft and contain critical data had vulnerabilities that would allow a remote attacker to take control of or render them unavailable.”
