Japanese space engineers have admitted one of their computers has been infected by a Trojan that may have leaked sensitive data, including system login information, to hackers. The breach also exposed blueprints stored in the attacked terminal, according to a statement by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). …
In an environment as sensitive as the one this PC was in, 'cleaning up' is simply not good enough.
They should have nuked the fucker from orbit!
gotta take off first, before nuking the site from orbit
low orbit ion cannon be satisfactory?
I like what you did there!
...removed from the agency's network as soon as a *red flag* was raised over its erratic behaviour
I guess they are running Windoze. FAIL for obvious reasons.
Why the same pc keeps getting infected, who is using it and what are they up to?
Cannot blame the Chinese. They NEED those plans to get to their new planned Moon base.
Oops. Did I say that out loud?
Won't happen, the Nazis got there first.
Don't play games with me your higness
I want those plans, and you have them
At least no-ones blaming apple for this one.....
Yes, that's me getting my coat as I leave....
Okay, the machine started "acting up" and some support guy used his skilz to "clean it up". They did not, at that time, detect the real problem.
4+ months later, same machine, same issue. Now they figure out that sometime 5 to 6 months BEFORE this second issue occurred there was a break in.
Interesting. Sounds to me like the support guy didn't really do anything to begin with (windows restore anyone?), because if he had it would have required restoring a lot of back ups to figure out the original issue.
