Facing the American space agency NASA NASA leak data are the names of real employees to user names, email addresses, names and data projects, according to a published security researcher Avinash Jain Avinash Jain, where the back of this registry because one of the systems Jira Jira NASA, a web application used by most companies to track projects, or errors and internal problems, said Jane, if the cause of poisoning was the settings of Jira, which seems to be responsible in the management of NASA had set it wrong.

According to security researcher the problem associated with the use of Jira to the phrase “everyone” and “all users” to determine the access rights of the user, which is a problem you know not a lot of managers who are responsible for the preparation of the application Jira Jira within the companies and institutions who have services between the two terms by selecting “all” by mistake when you specify the visibility of different sections of the neighborhood.
