The US's most sacred scientific institution is not safe from the malevolent attentions of the hacking community. Last week NASA's Web site was vandalised by hackers who.
The site does not contain any "sensitive information" according to an official release, but the attack is yet another example of how weak Web security is. The team that cracked the site, known as the H4G1S, posted a harsh criticism of the use of the site for commercial reasons. The posting stayed up on the site approximately 30 minutes before officials ordered it to be taken down.
Last year the CIA had its Web site vandalised just after the USAF suffered an embarrassing invasion. Even the US Justice Department was brought down after a team of hackers changed the text on the site.
