The United Kingdom Ministry of Defence website (www.qhm.mod.uk) hacked by two Null Hacking Crew members @OfficialNull and @Timoxeline and They extracted data published online. The data dump include 3400 email addresses and passwords from Ministry of Defence portal. - See more at: thehackernews.com...




Some people on ATS see these kind of actions as wanton vandalism. I see them as expressions of activism. An integral and healthy part of a democratic system.

The hack was a simple vulnerability maybe. But its egg on the face for the Ministry of Defence. Please do not quote from the pastbin link it is against ATS T/C.

Further promises to hack the U.S Department of Homeland Security next. As the article says the hack has probably been done already....

Given its a military site theres nothing on there thats going to be restricted in any way, ok they got a few email addresses which will probably get closed down and new ones issued so the only thing really is the PR snafu but i doubt that anyone will really care

Have you been to the Ministry of Defence. It has no doors. No entrance. Unknowns work there. It is a security breach as it have released accounts of people affiliated with the MOD..

Really? Plenty of doors when I worked there and the Old War Office Building. Both buildings have standard entry and exit security bubbles. No different from any other government owned building with controlled entry/exit. And no not 'unknowns'. HM Armed Forces personnel and Civilians.

Front door. Look you can even protest outside it!
