NOAA.gov Server Hack Update

**UPDATE 3:59 PM CST**

The FBI has been contacted by NOAA according to their Public Affairs Office. The statement I received is that NOAA is aware of the breech and is following its internal procedures. Thor Schrock and Schrock Innovations, Inc. have offered the NOAA and the FBI assistance by providing technical information that was intentionally not publicised on this blog.

**END UPDATE**

Now that news of the infiltration of the NOAA server has reached ZDNet, it appears that the NOAA is now responding to an unauthorized user accessing their website. The pages about Soma have been removed and the entire sub domain for the Global Monitoring Division is now down.

At the time of this post, http://www.cmdl.noaa.gov/ is offline. No content whatsoever is being served on the sub domain, which carried legitimate data from the NOAA as recently as this morning. The NOAA.gov main website is still operational.

The webmaster for the domain happens to be out sick today, and I have had difficulties reaching other NOAA or Public Affairs officials for comment.
