The official Twitter account for NASA’s Kepler, which surveys parts of the Milky Way Galaxy in search for hospitable planets, just got hacked. It’s unclear how or why the account was hacked, but it definitely tweeted a butt and a sketchy link.
Unfortunately for NASA, the tweet also shows up in the mission website.
This is the latest high profile account to be taken over and used for porn bot tweeting. A couple months ago, Symantec analyzed 2,500 Twitter accounts that have been taken over by porn bots.
