The American space agency NASA has warned its staff in an email that their personal details have been compromised in a data breach of two of its servers.This is not the first time that NASA has been hacked.A group of hackers that called themselves “The Unknowns” claimed to have hacked into systems belonging to the European Space Agency (ESA), and NASA, as well as a number of military websites, back in early 2012.The email stems from Bob Gibbs, assistant administrator, Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer at NASA.The hack took place in late October, when “NASA cybersecurity personnel began investigating a possible compromise of NASA servers where personally identifiable information (PII) was stored.”“Upon discovery of the incidents, NASA cybersecurity personnel took immediate action to secure the servers and the data contained within,” Gibbs email reads.
NASA has disclosed a data breach that it discovered on October 23, 2018, explaining that it had found a “possible compromise” on the space agency’s servers.These servers contained personally identifiable information (PII), according to NASA, and one of the servers also contained Social Security numbers belonging to both current and former employees.A top priority investigation into the matter is still underway.NASA disclosed the data breach to all of its employees on Tuesday, explaining that it will take time for its investigation to determine the scope of the breach and what may have been acquired.However, at this time, the space agency doesn’t believe that any of its missions were put in jeopardy by the infiltration.The announcement was made by NASA’s Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer assistant administrator Bob Gibbs, who explained that NASA has already performed its initial analysis and secured the servers with the data.
“NASA does not believe that any Agency missions were jeopardized by the cyber incidents”NASA’s servers have been hacked in an incident that the space agency says it is treating as a “top agency priority” and which may have exposed the details of staff with NASA since 2006.In an internal memo circulated to employees yesterday NASA said it is still investigating the scope of the data exfiltration, first discovered on October 23.The memo, written by Bob Gibbs, Assistant Administrator, Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer and obtained by SpaceRef said: “NASA does not believe that any Agency missions were jeopardized by the cyber incidents.”Senior leadership at NASA are “actively involved” in investigating the hack which has been set as a top agency priority, he added.The memo, which only informed workers of the breach two months after it occurred, is sparse on details, yet it does referred to the attack as ‘incidents’ in the plural, suggesting that it may be more than one breach.
