Cloud Services for Hackers

November 13, 2014 — Leave a comment

Do you need a server? Perhaps one hosted by an important Corporation? No problem, there is a service for that (no, not an App)… a service provided by Hackers.

Drupal Servers have very recently be compromised (see: Attackers Exploit Drupal Vulnerability) and sold to other malicious people. The hilarious part is that the attackers even patched the compromised systems, in their case to protect against further attacks, but effectively doing a better job than the actual Administrators.

This is not news, I freely admit it: this has happened in the past and will happen again and again. Nevertheless, I find it to be quite hilarious, because attackers sometimes demonstrate great entrepreneurial spirit and technical ability, sometimes even better that their victims. Like those hackers that offered a guarantee to replace a compromised server with another, if the one assigned to you had been cleaned meanwhile or for any other problem (see: Service Sells Access to Fortune 500 Firms).
