It seems that 2011 is the Year of the hacks and almost every week we with news related to computer attacks . The latest involves a Romanian hacker breached the security of a server related to Earth observation system at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center .
The hacker in question operates on the web under the name of TinKode , and appears to have a special interest in space agencies since a month ago exposed a security hole in the servants of the European Space Agency (ESA) .

is very interesting to read the excerpt from an interview via e-mail that made the editors of NetworkWorld with TinKode. Then I leave a part of the transcript translated into Spanish. “Why does public security breaches? Is it for companies to correct the vulnerabilities faster

TinKode I do not know. I do this because finding security holes is a hobby for me. If someone wants to hire, we can discuss it, no problem.
there any threat or action after exposing vulnerabilities in the websites of ESA, NASA and MySQL
TinKode: Until now, no. Do not do bad things. Only find and make public the information. After sending an email to that address the gaps. It’s like being a security auditor, but free “.
