This one is too good to be true, the website of world’s most advanced and powerful crime fighting agency has been claimed to be hacked by a hacker group which works under the name of Anonymous Slovenia.
The Anonymous Slovenia have not only claimed that they have hacked the website of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) the www.fbi.gov, they have further posted the email ids and passwords as proof of their exploits.
You can read the entire list posted by Anonymous Slovenia here. The leaks posted by a user going by the handle of Black-Shadow of the Anonymous Slovenia reportedly contains email addresses and passwords for 68 agents which are hosted on the fbi.gov website. Surprisingly Black-Shadow also claims on another Pastebin that “Collection. Alot work. Not all ours ;-]” You can read that Pastebin here. This pastebin also includes a brief resume of the current FBI Director James Brien Comey Jr.
The resume includes sensitive information such as his date of birth, his wife’s name, the date they got married, his educational history and even the geographical coordinates of his residence.
The post also reveals that Anonymous Slovenia targeted the FBI website www.fbi.gov through seven open ports. The hackers reportedly used following ports and proxies
188.8.131.52 responding on port 118 (sqlserv)
184.108.40.206 responding on port 3209 (asipx-webadmin) – Plaintext Passwords
220.127.116.11 responding on port 4415 (mxxrlogin)
18.104.22.168 responding on port 5613 (directplay6) – Remote Vulnerability
22.214.171.124 responding on port 7429 (openmail-mod)
126.96.36.199 responding on port 7440 (mppolicy-mgr) – Denial of Service
188.8.131.52 responding on port 7495 (x11-ssh-offset)
The post goes on to mock the FBI’s web security by stating ‘[REALLY GUYS, WHERE’S UR SECURITY]’ At this point and time FBI has neither denied or confirmed the hacks or the leaks. But the FBI website has been vulnerable to DDoS attacks in the past and similar posts have been made so it is difficult for techworm to either confirm the hack or confirm it as a hoax.
The parent of Anonymous Slovenia, the hacker group Anonymous already has some high profile hackings like websites CIA, Sony and the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency on its profile. techworm will bring you the latest information on this event as it happens
