Hackers Anti American Breach
News organizations from across the Internet have learned that an infamous computer hacking coalition with anti U.S. inclinations has triumphantly breached into at least two critical Internet servers overseen and maintained by the U.S. Armed Forces.
They are all delving deep into the circumstances behind the security penetration, and only a scant amount of details about the investigation has been revealed to the public so far.
Turkey based Cyber hacker gangs on the rise
Anyhow, the Turkey-based cyber criminals responsible for the hack (who all go by the group name "m0sted") infiltrated servers at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Transatlantic Center in Winchester, Virginia, and at the McAlester Ammunition Plant in McAlester, Oklahoma.
The hacking technique allows them to infiltrate and access the system via the SQL Server's unpatched security hole.
Their usual modus operandi was clearly seen in the military breaches.
During that time, users trying to get into the plant's homepage were instead redirected to a web address that featured complaints and protests about the Earth's climate change.
However, other than the redirects, it's not quite evident whether the black hat hacking group was able to steal classified data and records from the military's servers or not.
Also, because "m0sted" is a Turkish group, there is speculation that they could be connected with the Al-Qaeda network as well. Turkey is known to harbor fugitives from Osama Bin Laden's terrorist group.
