    Fail, they should put their time and resources in securing their systems instead of trying to extradite the British hacker who did some minor damage ages ago..

    Was that the Welsh bloke suffering from Asperger's Syndrome who was obsessed with UFOs & accidentally hacked into the Pentagon? Yeah, I shouldn't imagine he'll get any bara lafwr for breakfast at Guantanamo. :eek:

    I agree with securing their systems. Though you can have the best security in the world and your box will still get popped. The best and first line of defense is always the user and it seems NASA should invest in some mandatory IT asset protection training. ;)

    Yes, that's the one I meant. Indeed, I hope for him he doesn't end up in there..

    Yeah well, aren't Constellation & Orion cancelled? NASA seem even better than MI5 at leaving laptops on trains. o_O

    Now, you'd think that if anyone was good at security it would be the Pentagon. I think that they're just a bit embarrassed that some bloke from the Valleys suffering from a learning disorder, & a possible special needs candidate, hacked them.
