“A Romanian man has been indicted on charges of hacking into more than 150 U.S. government computers,
The U.S. government alleged Faur was the leader of a hacking group called “WhiteHat Team,” whose main goal was to break into U.S. government computers because they are some of the securest machines in the world.”
This “WhiteHat Team” is kind of poorly named. A whitehat is ethically against the unauthorized use of a computer system.
Also, if they think computers at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California; Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland; Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico; and the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington D.C. are among the most secure in the world they are mis-informed. Government systems routinely do poorly in their FISMA grading. They have been abused for the past 20 years. The real challenge is not going to jail after hacking them. They failed at that.
