According to a News Report published in Information Week a known "computer hacking clan" (going by the name m0sted) was able to break into at least two sensitive web servers maintained by the US Army. Department of Defense is investigating this breach and has not disclosed this to the general public yet. End users trying to access the web servers were redirected to a web page that featured information about climate change.
|It is not clear if any other damage was done to the server beyond the redirection to another web site. It still shows the vulnerabilty in the server computers that has been exploited. The hacker group involved in this attack is known to security professionals due to their past record and successful attempt to hack the Army Core of Engineer servers in the past. The technique used in this and the past attack was that of a "SQL injection"|
