Italian probed for hacking NASA site

Postal police suspect he hacked 60 institutional pages

(ANSA) - Rome, October 8 - Brescia postal police on Monday said a 25-year-old Italian man has been formally placed under investigation for hacking NASA sites in 2013 and using a number of failures in the system of Italy's space agency ASI to replace its home page.
    The young man, who is unemployed and lives in the northern town of Salò, has admitted his role in the hackings, said the investigators, who are coordinated by the state attorney's office in Brescia.
    The young man is charged with hacking eight domains of the US space agency and replacing the homepage of the Italian space agency.
    The 25-year-old has previously claimed responsibility for the hackings on social media, alleging that he belongs to the 'Master Italian hacker team', a community that has claimed responsibility for various attacks on institutional sites.
