Abdilo, Australia-based computer hacker, live streams attack on US education sites
Abdilo, the Australia based hacker who had hacked and stolen 770,000 records from Australian travel insurance company, Aussie Travel Cover, has now taken to live streaming of his hacking exploits.
Australian website, ABC, had revealed yesterday that Abdilo was responsible for what could be the largest breach of private details in Australian history.
Perhaps brazened by his hack exploits and publicity with Aussie Travel Cover hack, Abdilo was back to hacking and this time chose to focus his attention on education websites based in United States. Abdilo chose to live stream his hacking activities for all those who are interested in his exploits by posting them on streaming website, join.me.
He took down website of a US university based in Illinois through SQL injection attack and stole the database structure. He then posted the database structure called email_list online. The email_list appears to contain message data and attachments.
Once Abdilo was done with his hacking, he signed off: “ended stream gotta go do shit now cya,” on his Twitter account. Before ending his hacking spree he seems to have hacked into at least 5 university websites.
Aussie Travel Cover
Abdilo had yesterday said that he stole more than 770,000 records when he broke into the computer systems of travel insurance company Aussie Travel Cover. ABC said that Abdilo stole customer details and insurance policy information of about 777,000 Aussie Travel Cover customers. The stolen data base also included partially redacted credit card numbers, names, phone numbers and email addresses.
Abdilo then leaked some of the stolen data online and admitted to the ABC via internet chat that while he knew it was reckless, he was not worried about the police.
IntelCrawler, a private security research company said that Abdilo is a teenager living in Queensland.
