Hadopi Search Engine Hacked to Turn Into The Pirate Bay

Hadopi Search Engine Hacked to Turn Into The Pirate Bay

The French agency tasked with addressing the problem of file-sharers’ copyright digressions has found itself shamed by another copyright-related blunder. Hadopi agency, which requires that all citizens secure their networks in order to keep out downloading pirates, appeared to have an unsecured website itself. Ironically, the exploit allows to change Hadopi search engine into… that of The Pirate Bay!

Actually, Hadopi’s troubles began last year, when the agency released its logo to the public and has forgotten to secure a license to use the font type. Now, the news about another mistake hit the web – the head of the country’s Pirate Party has revealed an interesting vulnerability he discovered on the website of the copyright agency.

Hadopi started a new search engine on its website just a week ago. The search was meant to help the public in finding legal sources to download films and music online. That could be a very useful feature, but it turned out to be very easy to exploit.

The Pirate Party boss, Da Silva, only needed 10 minutes to discover a vulnerability of the site, which could easily replace the copyright agency’s search engine with that of The Pirate Bay, altogether with Pirate Bay’s logo – the best known pirate icon worldwide. By the way, that wasn’t the first time the Pirate Party President has found an exploit in the Hadopi website – 6 months ago he found the first flaw. By doing all this, Da Silva is going to show that not even the copyright outfit itself is able to meet its own requirements.

Hadopi requires that all Internet users secure their Wi-Fi connection. Otherwise, they run the risk of being disconnected entirely. Meanwhile, the Pirate Party has been telling MPs and Hadopi employees that it’s just impossible to secure everyone’s Internet connection. This would require each French citizen to be experts, and even experts, as it was proved with the Hadopi exploit, can appear vulnerable. Nevertheless, the authorities remain deaf to these arguments, so the Pirate Party is trying to prove that even copyright agency fails to fulfil its own security requirements. This is already the 2nd time the vulnerability on their site was indicated, so according to the “three-strikes” rule, the agency should cut its own Internet connection the next time.

DoomRider13 avatarThey really deserve to be called the Pirate Bay. They find a nice hidden place in order to do some business. I like the style!
