    MSN Defacement

    Zone-h just reported a defacement of the MSN shopping domain. Looks like the hacker(s) "Bautista" whacked a slew W2K servers today. Here's the link - Better catch it before it disappears.

    Yes. Very embarrassing! I'm kind of stumped on how it was pulled off though. With all the layers of security that MSN employs...I'm inclined to think that it was an inside job. Oh well.... who knows.

    With all the stuff going on with Choicepoint....This came at a very bad for Microsoft. I wonder if people are starting to realize maybe Microsoft pulled MSN logins for external sites for breaches such as this and their vulverable messenging service.

    I can't believe it's still up. Oh wait, is this really an msn domain? shopping.msn.com.sg?

    Singapore?

    Guess I should have checked before opening my large orifice.

    //EDIT you would think that if MS had some direct control over them they would be offline by now. Still up as of 22:38 UTC.

    how is it possible that this has been up for so long and no one from the microsoft camp has noticed yet?

    is it just me or does something smell fishy?

    Well there seems to be two things here.

    First, has anyone here actually sent a note to abuse@msn.com.sg or abuse@msn.org? It's very likely they don't know about it given point 2.

    Second, it doesn't seem to be a main linked page so it may not "show up on their radar". Not a good reason but I wonder if it's not really a "store" but rather a random page that was created. I tried searching for their page locally and it doesn't appear.

    The source is interesting to look at. They went to some lengths to hide their source (linked photo). A search through Google pulls up a variety of similar sites.
