In what is going to be probably one of the biggest attacks of the year NASA has been hacked and had a large amount of data taken.
This attack has come from a hacker using the handle @r00tw0rm and was announced via twitter. The leaked data it self is most likely something NASA could of prevented by responding to the hackers who had contacted NASA about the exploit. As stated by r00tw0rm NASA didnt take it so serious so now they have had a very minor part of the data leaked.
This comes as we seen the same thing happen yesterday due to a stubborn forum admin, so it makes us wonder how many companys out there ignore the contact or see it as a threat when all they have to do is acknowledge the exploit and move forward and fix the problem.
