AntiSec campaign seemed to calm down a bit, but not for good. Within the latest hacking of a public institution in the US, the country’s Eastern District court of Tennessee was targeted. P0keu has hacked its website and posted user names and passwords to PasteBin.
Previously, P0keu has also done multiple hackings – for example, he took responsibility for hacking DJ site VisitBPM and Canadian blog Tamil Canadian. Recently he tweeted another hacking and provided links to PasteBin. Like in previous cases, P0keu didn’t include himself into AntiSec campaign which at least had some reason for hacking. As for P0keu, he’s keeping with his own theme of hacking, refusing to provide an explanation as to why he decided to hack any of the targeted services in the first place. However, the hacking itself doesn’t seem so great – the posting only consisted of a half a dozen user names and passwords to the MySQL database that might have belonged to administrators. Currently, it is unclear what the repercussions of this hacking will be.
Aside from P0keu, other hackers didn’t sit still and managed to hack Montana government website MT.gov – an official state government site containing different resources along with vulnerabilities. Abhaxas has recently posted the results of hacking to Pastebin as well. It seems that after breaking into Florida’s voting database twice, Abhaxas turned his attention towards Montana now. The high-profile hacker posted the list the obtained databases and asked coders to stop exposing government’s information to everyone. Compared to many other AntiSec information dumps, this one didn’t have data beyond the list of obtained databases.
Another target of the hackers appeared to be British tabloid – The Sun. It seems that LulzSec is back to attack Rupert Murdoch empire first of all. Although the very fact of LulzSec coming back is amusing, the group started with action and redirected TheSun.co.uk to LulzSec twitter feed. The website went offline in attempts of the administrators to fix the service.
Currently, there are even specific services offered online like websites that have been set-up to analyse through hacked information and find out if your private content was exposed either in AntiSec campaign or in any other hacks like e-mail hacks.
