    MS Web Defacements

    It looks like the hacker with the handle of "iskorpitx" hit at least 5000 MS 2K servers last night. http://www.zone-h.org/en/defacements

    Has anyone heard how this was accomplicshed? My thoughts Perhaps done via:
    1. A new, unknown vulnerability
    2. Built off of one of the MS critical releases
    3. The product of hording compromised systems, via known vulns, to set some record?

    I would like to know more specifics if anyone is privy to the info.

    If you look closely you'll see that every url that got defaced ends in /cgi-bin. So my guess would be some vulnerable cgi-script.

    Thanks SirDice. I can't believe I overlooked that. Overlooking the obvious is often painful. Let me slap myself in the forehead to make the point!

    Thanks again.
