|Singles.org gets hacked Posted on Monday, February 23 2009|
Note: I'm publishing this now because it looks like all passwords have been reset and new accounts are being deleted. I had made a few dummy accounts for testing.
Update: See my analysis of the most common passwords from singles.org and other hacked databases.
Singles.org's horrible programming accomplished the worst case senario; In the site's edit-your-profile section it contains the plain-text password and email information. Since many people use the same password for everything 4chan was having a field day going through their emails and sub-accounts. Several threads in 4chan today have posts showing images of vandalized goatse'ed facebook/myspace accounts. They've also been getting into people's email accounts and sending messages to everyone in the address book saying: I'm going to kill myself, I have HIV, and I've converted to islam. A few people have gone so far as to post screen shots of them using their amazon accounts and paypal accounts to purchase things like vibrators. I don't really know who initially found the 'exploit' but since singles.org has been around forever it's possible the trolling has been going on for a long time before it reached the general trolling communities of the internet.
Singles.org sent out emails saying they changed peoples passwords as a 'maintenance', instead of warning its users to immediately change the passwords to all their accounts. Meanwhile the problem was not fixed and more and more screenshots have been appearing.
Moral of the Story
- Use different passwords for your email.
- Use a throw away email address for forums and random sites.
- Praying/Church does not protect you against trolling
Assume no site is safe
Big sites like monster.com (multiple times), kaspersky.com, bitdefender.com, stage6, ... have gotten their database hacked. Many huge sites have gotten backup hard drives stolen. The worst hacks are the ones nobody noticed. Recently yahoo had a xss exploit that's been on one of its subdomains for who knows how long stealing cookies, from which they can further steal passwords from people with yahoo mail. phpbb.com also got hacked fairly recently with the hacker putting the entire user database on p2p networks like thepiratebay.
