Hackers gained "full functional control" of key Nasa computers in 2011, the agency's inspector general has told US lawmakers.
Paul K Martin said hackers took over Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) computers and "compromised the accounts of the most privileged JPL users".
He said the attack, involving Chinese IP addresses, was under investigation.

Obama is destroying our national security in so many ways it is frightening.
It’s not frightening, it’s maddening and downright treasonous.
Patrick Henry is sitting in Heaven saying to Washington, “What the Hell, George? He’s worse than I am and the People are doing and saying nothing.”
GW just shrugs, “Like Ben said, ‘A Republic, if you can keep it.’ Apparently they can’t.”
If it further weakens and compromises the US space program, it must be good in Obamaworld.
Yeah....and the difference is....under Bush they would have HAD to hack their way in. Obama will probably just give them access from now on. I wonder how many missles the Chicoms will allow America to retain.
I think this is the second time that John Parson’s Lab has been hit by hackers.
If it’s not about how the Republicans want to take birth control away from Democrat girls, it won’t make the news.
NASA Administrator Charles BOLDEN:
"perhaps foremost, Obama wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science....and math and engineering."
'Revealing the most appalling stupidity and criminality emanating from the Oval Office'. . .wouldn't be a bit surprised if the breech was aided and abetted by internal access due this suicidally insane outreach effort.
It probably makes it a tad easier then they hire Chinese nationals for these trusted positions.
Say Jack, I’ll bet you used to work there. I’ve spent a lot of time at John Parson’s Lab and your name comes up quite often.
I’m really trying to keep a low profile over there these days!
At least we have no more shuttle missions anymore, would hate to see the damage a hacked shuttle slamming into a building from orbit would have done....
Republicans don't want to take birth control away from Democrats. We want our Republican kids to get married and have lots of kids while the Democrats abort theirs when they fail to prevent pregnancies in the first place. /sarc
Actually I don't want anyone aborted, even Democrats. Murder is murder.
However, a simple look at the political power gained by high birthrates of Orthodox Jews in Israel and Muslims in Europe shows there are certain advantages to large families. I'm not a Roman Catholic but it's hard to counter the practical logic of the Roman Catholic position on this issue. Letting the liberals destroy their children while conservatives multiply is not necessarily a bad idea.
How are the rest of your family; Spent, Precious, Wasted and Surplus?
you really can’t say who hacked into it. When I was young and stupid, I would use chinese IP’s to do my playing. It is a dead end for anyone trying to track it back. Not saying it wasn’t chinese, just saying it could be anyone that wants to protect their own IP.
I was in the USMC with Bolden. He has devolved into an Obama stooge. Somebody in congress should be investigating this and hauling his sorry ass up to Capitol Hill to testify.
Wait and see if the rumor proves true that also trillions went to China, as Ulsterman’s WHI attests, and who declares the “war is on”, suggesting that the push back, against the Obama regime, from Wall Street Insider(s) is finally beginning.
I think possibly we have not yet a clue for what all has already happened in the dark. Not a clue.
I worked for the company, way back in the early ninties for sure, that was the government contractor for the JPL lab.
It was, you should smile, a MARYLAND company, of all things. No one else knew how to do a California payroll (well they didn’t know how to do a Maryland payroll but that’s another story) and somehow I was just walking along and all of a sudden it became my job.
The stuff I learned about how people are paid in California...boggles the mind.
Even back then it was a government contracting crony, a fellow who knew nothing saved had connections to the Clinton administration.
I cannot even begin to imagine how bad it has to be today what with NASA not even having any responsibility or anything.
Thus it’s no surprise here that hacking of their computers was so easy. I bet by now even I could hack into their computers.
They changed it from NASA to Nasa!!!!
There needs to be another word for this besides hacking. This is not hacking. This is the Chinese NSA launching a probing and reconnaissance attack on the USA. Good thing the Military doesn’t let NASA in on the really black ops. Uh-oh, hope that mess up there doesn’t get any ideas.
It is worse than you think because once the spies gain the illegal access they leave behind in the computer what is called Trojan Horse software that allows them to re-access the computers anytime they wish.
The California professors who run the computer systems should be taken off contract and the military put in control of their computers and physical security.
How much will you bet Obama will not act against this threat?
“NASA said the loss of data did not affect the operations of the International Space Station”
Now there’s an opportunity for the photo shop guys.
Man those Kardashians have rather ample bumpers.
Republicans want to destroy the earth at 11....
No harm done since the hackers did not use the NASA system to access SAC-NORAD and launch a few missiles.
