NASA Kepler Twitter Account Hacked, Tweets Sexy Butt

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. @NASAKepler

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 of months ago, Symantec analysed 2500 Twitter accounts that have been taken over by porn bots.

The account has since been restored.
