The public mailing list domain of Kali Linux (lists.kali.org) was hacked and defaced earlier today by Libyan hackers going with the handle “The GreaT TeAm”.
Kali Linux is a Debian-derived Linux distribution designed for digital forensics and penetration testing, maintained and funded by Offensive Security Ltd.
Hacker has stated that the hacked subdomain is being hosted by a company called Mailman List and that, Mailman List is vulnerable to #heartbleed vulnerability which he used to gain access to the administrative account.
Kali Linux team later tweeted that hacked subdomain was infact inactive. It was also a 3rd party domain with 0 volume mailing list and hence they were least worried about the hacking.
Looks like our inactive, 3rd party, 0 volume mailing list was hacked. DNS entry removed – back to sleep, problem solved.
