I only got a count on Group 2. Log reported being hit by a Federation Kontos.
Group 1 was still firing at me (perma tank), when I accessed the wreck.
RIGHT after Group 2 spawned, 3 player battleships entered and began targeting me.
I had the objective so warped out immediately.

Was 3 constellations from start, so do believe it a 'on purpose' low sec.

Completed in an overtanked Buzzard. Note - no gate; MWD works.
Blitz: Cloak fitted to get past losec PC's (only saw a couple, but a lot of NPC's at gates); MWD or cloak up to target, salvage it, open it, grab datacore and run. Shield barely troubled, even after group 2 spawned.

Probably doable in a standard Kestrel or Condor, properly tanked (although have to watch for PC's if not blitzing). Note that, 16 jumps from home, bringing in your salvager is probably not an option.

Mission itself complete in 5 mins, but 16 jumps (3 regions, 5 constellations) to & from target, plus proper losec caution - this isn't a fast mission.

Buzzard Fit:

Salvager 1 (note: should have fitted 2!)
Improved Cloaking Device 2 (note: covert ops cloak would be better, but didn't have the skills)

2x SSE 2
Heat Dissipation 2
Ballistic Deflection 2

Nanofibre Internal Structure 2
Micro Auxiliary Power Core 1

2x Small Ancillary Current Router 1
