Hackers threaten to release 40GB of Australian ISP data
Hackers claiming to have stolen 40GB of data from one of Australia's largest internet service providers are threatening to publish part of the cache in protest against the nation's proposed data retention laws.
The group was involved in the defacement of Queensland Government websites this week and claimed to be associated with Anonymous.
A member told CRN's sister publication SC Magazine that they would not release user details contained in the stolen data or name the victim telco, which they described as "one of Australia's largest". The stolen cache was said to be a 40GB database backup that was accessed through an unpatched Adobe ColdFusion vulnerability. The hacker said the telco found and removed the remote shell they uploaded to the server and patched the vulnerability.
