The Los Angeles federal grand jury has indicted a Romanian citizen on charges he hacked into 25 climate-research computers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Prosecutors say Tuesday’s indictment charges 25-year-old Robert Butyka with one count of unauthorized impairment of a protected computer.

The 2010 hacking made computers unusable for two months while a malicious code was removed and data restored  in the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder Program.
