There’s nothing like having your butt kicked Christmas morning, which is exactly what happened to us today. We were owned and exposed, in true fashion. Initially, the inj3ct0r team took “creds” for the hack, which quickly proved false as the original ezine showed up – and now inj3ct0r (their new site) is no longer online. As a wise Chinese man once said: “do not anger one who has shell on your server”. The zine also mentioned other sites, as well as the ettercap project being backdoored.
We are currently cleaning out our systems and analyzing the attacks – thankfully, the compromise was limited to non root access, and other than our egos, the damage is not severe. To the “owned and exposed” guys, we have a couple of things to say:
1) Thanks for not rm’ing us.
2) The irony of posting your zine in our “papers” section is not lost on us.
Merry Christmas to you all, and a happy new year!
