Industry sources have confirmed that a new generation of "phreakers" may be able to manipulate data switched through a hybrid TDM-VOIP network, allowing them to make free calls.
Nearly 550,000 Navy and Marine Corps Intranet users have gotten the orders to change their passwords following an unauthorized Oct. 20 “intrusion” into the system.
That’s right. NMCI got hacked.
“No personal or operational data was compromised in the intrusion,” said Lt. Cmdr. Ron Steiner, spokesman for the Naval Network Warfare Command in Norfolk, Va. “Changing passwords is just a normal, prudent step when you have an intrusion.”
Steiner could not comment on the exact location of the break-in, saying only that it came through a “legacy server.”
San Francisco school officials are trying to figure out who hacked into a high school Web site, posted a student's face over vulgar and mocking images, then added racist and gang-related captions using the student's name.
Normally, the Washington High Web site features the usual school fare: club news, athletic schedules, student triumphs and information for parents.
But on Wednesday, school officials realized that someone had replaced all the school information with a set of photo montages apparently intended to humiliate a single student.
You might think you've heard about every possible security vulnerability in your network, but what about your copiers?
Four teenagers from suburban Oak Lawn have been suspended from school for allegedly hacking into a computer system to change their grades.
A teacher at Oak Lawn High School discovered the scheme two weeks ago. She noticed the grades for one student did not match up with the grades in the school computer system.
Officials later discovered that three juniors and one senior allegedly broke into the district's system and changed their grades. They have been suspended for 10 days.
When the students return to school, they will be stripped of their computer privileges.
