A rogue Raspberry Pi helped hackers access NASA JPL systems

  • Published: 20 June 2019
  • NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) suffers from multiple cybersecurity weaknesses despite the advances it has achieved in space technology, according to the agency's Office of Inspector General (PDF). Investigators looked into the research center's network security controls after an April 2018 security breach, wherein a Raspberry Pi that was not authorized to be linked to the JPL network was targeted by hackers. The attackers were able to steal 500 megabytes of data from one of its major mission systems, and they also used that chance to find a gateway that allowed them to go deeper into JPL's network.

                      This shows that there is no such thing as unhackable when it comes to any electronics and technology.

                              VERY CLICKBAIT. literally in the first few sentences she calls a raspberry pi HOOKED UP TO YOUR NETWORK "innocuous". IT IS LITERALLY JUST A LINUX COMPUTER, so that's already not innocuous anymore than any other computer, LET ALONE IT BEING SO SMALL MAKES IT MORE HARD TO FIND.
