News: Fedora Project Compromised

leave a comment »

I have just been informed through Dennis Fisher’s post that Fedora project was compromised using a hacked contributor’s SSH account. However, Fedora Infrastructure Team states that no changes were made by the attacker since they were informed of the compromised account incident fast by the legitimate owner of the account and performed to the required operations.

News: IBM DeveloperWorks got Owned

leave a comment »

I was reading the Full-Disclosure mailing list when I came across this thread. I don’t know how valid this is since I didn’t have the opportunity to see it myself and I only got the following screen capture from the mailing list.



Update:
From the FD mailing list Juha-Matti Laurio posted the following zone-h mirror of the hack:

News: phpMyFAQ Project Backdoored

with 3 comments

Heh… This week has more disclosed hacks and discovered backdoors than killed bug. :P

This one was disclosed by VUPEN Security and it’s about this PHP project. The backdoor is installed in releases 2.6.11 and 2.6.12 and it’s placed in getTopTen() function located in inc/Faq.php file. For completeness, here is the official VUPEN’s security advisory for this backdoor, and here is the project’s one.

Unfortunately, the backdoored version of the project was removed from the tubes and that’s why the hacked code isn’t part of this post. :(

If you have the source code of inc/Faq.php downloaded between December 4 and 15 and you want me to publish it here, drop me an email.

News: McDonald’s Customer Databse Hacked

leave a comment »

Unfortunately, this is not very appropriate for the “news” since it’s quite old by now. For historical purposes I’m publishing this post. On Monday, 13 December 2010 hackers gained access to a McDonald’s database containing data of people whi voluntarily signed up for its websites and promotions. For further details you can read Reuters official report.

News: avast.se got pwned

leave a comment »

I have just been informed by d3v1l‘s twitter message, that avast.se which is the Swedish mirror of the popular Anti-Virus software was defaced. The site still returns the altered index page by the time of this writing but as a reference, here is its zone-h mirror record.
And below is a screen capture I got:



It’s also quite ironic that the broken lock image in the defacement page was obtained by a Gawker‘s server…
