NASA Website Hacked: Protesting US Spying in Brazil and Action Against Syria

    NASA's website was hacked Monday night by a group calling itself "#BMPoC".  The page put up by the group was at this url (kepler.nasa.gov/news/managerupdates/) and as of just before midnight on Monday appeared as follows:

    Visitors to the page are first greeted with a pop-up window which reads "DO NOT ATTACK THE SYRIAN" followed by another reading "U.S. SPY STOP THE BRAZIL" before the image above appears.  The complete text of the page is:
We are: Cyclone - MMxM - UT0P|4
Greats: Xploiter Hacker - Invectus - DIeG0
Stop spy on us.
The Brazilian population do not support your attitude!
The Illuminati are now visibly acting!
Obama heartless!
Inhumane! you have no family? the point in the entire global population is supporting you. NOBODY!
We do not want war, we want peace!!! 
     The source code references two website with Brazilian suffixes: http://maquinas-sorvetes.com.br/ and www.valor.com.br, but apparently only to reference images used in the screen produced above.
    This is apparently not the first time this hacker has managed to hijack a portion of NASA's website.  In April, the website hackread.com reported on a similar incident.  There are other reports of NASA's site being hacked as well.
