Huffingtonpost - A laptop stolen from NASA last year was unencrypted and contained command and control codes for the International Space Station on it, the agency's inspector general told a United States House subcommittee yesterday
Way to go Nasa security. I cant even get a thumb drive onto a Air Force base in AZ, yet someone can walk with a confidential laptop...
Well I think leaving with something that looks like it belongs with you would be much easier than bringing something in that could potentially upload a virus, steal data, etc. Still sucks, but with all the budget cuts that are hitting NASA I would guess that updating/upgrading security isnt on the list.
The reason no USB drives are allowed is because of the scare a few years back from the ones they found that the Chinese had made to send info off without the users permission. Still you would like to believe there are procedures and regulations to prevent that from happening.
Eh. Whow ants to take bets who will start the 3rd world war. China? or the U.S.A? I'm torn between the two.
