The public mailing list domain of Kali Linux ( was hacked and defaced earlier today by Libyan hackers going with the handle “The GreaT TeAm”.

Kali Linux Mailing List website Hacked by Libyan hackers

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.
