Scotland Yard careers web site defaced26/02/2008 Written by Staff
A cracker going by the handle of “officer brobee” has defaced UK Metropolitan Police’s (also known as Scotland Yard) careers web site.
In the hacked page the defacer inserted a picture of a green monster followed by a text making fun of their anti-terrorism unit, saying they hired incompetent people. Maybe the defacer decided to attack the site after the police refused to hire him?
According to the mirror informations, the server hosting the web site was running Windows 2000 and the defacer exploited a SQL injection vulnerability. Scotland Yard — just like many organizations, companies, governments.. — invests millions in security but forgets that equipments are not enough if the web application is vulnerable to common security issues…
Here is a copy of the defaced page:
OFFICER BROBEE SEZ: OH HAI GUYS do joo wanna bes a policeman lulz? I see that teh so15 anti-terrorism anti-lulz police are hiring more incompetent nervy edgy sociopaths to make London’s streets just that little bit safer! OH LULZ.
SHOUTS TO l0g1kal for being such a leet dude and to LULKITTEH for being so fancy
