A hacker is claiming that a security hole in a server at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has exposed data related to a satellite-based Earth observation system used to aid in disaster relief.
The hacker, who uses the handle "Tinkode" has published a screen capture from what he claims is an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server at NASA's Goddard Center. The hack comes exactly a month after the same hacker exposed a similar hole in a server operated by the European Space Agency.
The screenshot from the server at the Goddard Space Center was published on Tuesday. It shows a directory tree from the server, servir.gsfc.nasa.gov, which appears to be connected with NASA's SERVIR program. It is not clear what the purpose of the server is or the nature of the security hole exploited by Tinkode.
