NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory network was compromised using unauthorised Raspberry Pi

79



A report by NASA Office of Inspector General (OIG) Office of Audits has found that the space agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) network was compromised in April 2018. The hacker(s) gained unauthorised access to the agency’s network through a compromised external user system. As noted by ZDNet, this happened because of an unvetted Raspberry Pi system that was connected to NASA’s JPL network. The Raspberry Pi was used as a point of entry by the attackers to explore the JPL network and steal about 500 MB of data related to the agency’s Mars missions.
