NASA Websites Hacked Again (Update - Still Offline)

Keith's 11 Sep note: NASA was hacked yesterday by the BMPoC to protest U.S. cyberintelligence activities. One more reminder that everything everyone posts everywhere is seen by everyone. These NASA websites (at ARC) were affected and are currently offline:

kepler.arc.nasa.gov, amase2008.arc.nasa.gov, event.arc.nasa.gov, amesevents.arc.nasa.gov/sites, academy.arc.nasa.gov, planetaryprotection.nasa.gov, virtual-institutes.arc.nasa.gov, astrobiology2.arc.nasa.gov, nextgenlunar.arc.nasa.gov , lunarscience.nasa.gov, moonfest.arc.nasa.gov, iln.arc.nasa.gov, lunarscience.arc.nasa.gov

NASA ARC has this notice up if you try to reach these websites: "Down For Maintenance. The requested webpage is down for maintenance. Please try again later. Affected sites include but is not limited to:

* lunarscience.arc.nasa.gov
* kepler.nasa.gov
* nari.arc.nasa.gov"

Keith's 19 Sep note: More than half of these websites are still offline. Wow. NASA really does not have a lot of resiliency when it comes to responding to a hacking event, despite what PAO would have you believe.

"At no point were any of the agency's primary websites, missions or classified systems compromised," said Nasa spokesman Allard Beutel. "We are diligently taking action to investigate and reconstitute the websites impacted during web defacement incident," he said."
