NullCrew dip into Yale student data pool
The newly founded hacker collective NullCrew has been very busy in the past few days. After they hacked the systems of ASUS and the ones of a South African ISP directory, they turned their attention to Yale University.
From the databases of the educational institution, the hackers obtained the details of around 1,200 students and members of the staff.
“This release merely had a reason other than to prove that nothing is secure. In fact, the governmental and educational sites are the least secure in the experience we've had with .edu and .gov websites,” the hackers wrote next to the data dump. NullCrew claims that the database they’ve gained access to contains even more sensitive information such as social security numbers, names, addresses and phone numbers, but because their purpose is merely to show that nothing is secure, they’ve only published usernames, passwords and email addresses.
