This past weekend “SHIZEN“ of the Brasilian based hacking group Pryzraky was active in a string of international incidents. The first hack targeted San Jose State University in California – USA, the second targeted French National Police and DynDNS, also located in France, and the third targeted Internet Brasil – all via Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.
In a statements online, SHIZEN explained how he was able to target San Jose State University through an SQL vulnerability tied to the sites back end – though he opted to keep the specific URL effected private from the public. Using it, SHIZEN managed to exploit a My SQL version 4.1 database attached to an Oracle iPlantet 7.1 web server, exposing approximately 42 databases attached to/affiliated with the website. SHIZEN officially labeled the hack #OpEdu, a new global hacking operation targeting international universities and educational institutions unveiled to the public for the first time just last week.
