An Internet hacking group named SwaggSec has claimed that they have hacked the networks of Warner Bros. and China Telecom. They have published documents and login credentials purportedly looted in the cleaves. This hacker group is known as Swagg Security, flashed the hacking news on its Twitter page and revealed a statement on Pastebin, providing the links to the purloined files posted on The Pirate Bay. This hacker group has been actively working since early this year. The group came into limelight earlier for stealing user names and passwords for an ordering system associating to the contract manufacturer Foxconn, which make devices for technology companies including Apple.
SwaggSec’s issued a statement claiming credit for hacking into China Telecom.
“In regarding to the China Telecom hack, the table we released is the admin table. You may be wondering why only one table? Well, not only did they have millions of users, their SQL server sucked. But with these admin users you can login
into http://www4.chinatelecom.com.cn/sxgz/login.jsp and access literally every bit
of information they have. And here are the rest of the Databases we saw in the SQL
We are also quite aware that China Telecom, is aware of the hack. Although, they have not changed any of the admin passwords or information. They assumed they were safe. Fortunately for them, we did not destroy their infrastructure and rendered millions of customers without communication. However, due to their ignorance and their ignorance of not releasing a statement of them being hacked, potentially risking their customers well being, we are releasing all their information. it would be pretty funny to see their stocks tumble down. Now with this information released, they must trust the average person, the people they let down, not to go in and destroy their infrastructure. It always ends up in the hands of the people, doesn’t it?”
Similarly, the hacker group also hacked Warner Bros. The company was not conscious about their low security level. The hacker group said,
“Ahh, good old WarnerBros. Although, for this hack we did not use SQLi, and don’t have any databases. We got into their servers which holds the information directly. We still have access to all their servers, but in the meantime, for proof, we released their “confidential” IT department’s statistics. With this data you can see, that Warner Bros recognizes they have “critical vulnerabilities” but do not acton it immediately. Enjoy”.
