Testimony to Congress reveals just how bad NASA's cybersecurity problem has become
This NASA hack story keeps getting worse and worse. We knew that NASA had been the target of a handful off attempted cyber attacks last year, but in testimony before the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology over the last week, we’re getting the details straight from Paul Martin, NASA’s inspector general. NASA was targeted 47 times last year and 13 of those hacks were successful, at various points handing hackers “full functional control” of critical NASA networks. At one point the agency even lost the keys to the International Space Station.
