On Wednesday, NASA denied the group hacking assertion associated with them Anonymous, AnonSec that they violated one of the organization's best drones.
The space agency said the 250GB data that AnonSec said was stolen by violating NASA networks contains information that was already public!
This Sunday, AnonSec became a front page by posting massive NASA data that included 150GB drones with names, email addresses, and phone numbers over NASA's 2.400 workers.

The data immediately began to be available on different servers. In the same publication, the hackers claimed that they had partially taken control of one drone which flew over the Pacific which was one of two Northrop Grumman NOC + 1.06% Global Hawk unmanned aircraft.
However, the latest news is that NASA has denied AnonSec's statement and made the following announcement:
"The control of our Global Hawk aircraft was not compromised. Supposed hacked data is nothing more than data already available to the public. NASA takes cyber security very seriously and will fully investigate all these allegations. "
The National Aeronautics and Space Agency argues that it is constantly releasing information that is open to the public and so any hacker could take them and claim to have stolen them from the internal system of the service. The service said the Open Data website has 30.000 datasets that everyone can see.
Hackers also claimed they had access to the service network from 2013 and initially did it just for the fun and thrill of hacking NASA!
