Hacking the hacker! Kevin Mitnick, hacker par excellence, recently came out of federal probation and started a new security consulting company called, Defensive Thinking. Twice in the last two weeks, hackers/vandals have managed to hack into the website of Mitnick's company.
The latest breach was by a hacker from Texas who said he hacked into Mitnick's site because he wanted to be hired as Mitnick's security officer.
In the earlier breach, a hacker calling themselves Bugbear simply added a page to the website saying; "welcome back to freedom mr.kevin ;)".
In both instances, the hackers took advantage of a flaw in Microsoft's popular Internet Information Server (IIS) to break into the web server.
Golly!! hearing this... I am wondering how many customers Defensive Thinking is going to get!!
