Hacker exposes data on server at NASA Goddard

Threat Post is reporting that a hacker claims to have exposed data on an FTP server at NASA’s Goddard Center related to the satellite-based Earth Observation System. EOS consists of a series of polar-orbiting satellites used for long-term global observations of the land surface, biosphere, solid Earth, atmosphere and oceans

The hacker, who goes by the name “Tinkode” published a screen grab of the directory tree from what appears to be a computer related to the Servir program that uses global satellite observations to aid in natural-disaster mitigation and humanitarian responses.
