Hackers mistake NASA for NSA

AFP-JIJI

Hackers have hit back in retaliation for U.S. cyberspying on Brazil but mistook the U.S. space agency NASA for the National Security Agency, a news website reported Tuesday.

“Some activists decided to protest this U.S. practice but it seems that they picked the wrong target,” a specialized blog of the Brazilian news portal Uol said. “They hacked NASA’s Web page and left the message: Stop spying on us.”

The hackers’ message also called on the U.S. not to attack Syria. A NASA spokesman confirmed that a Brazilian hacker group last week posted a political message on a number of NASA websites.
