Cracked Like a Soggy Sao (part 2)

Filed under: — nortypig @ 1:40 pm

Its a truth of the web but they’re out there, crackers, testing your security either out of bordom or a belief in what they do makes the enemy stronger. Well following my previous entry about having a guestbook hijacked by someone I got an email from a 14 year old boy in the United States explaining he is a ‘white cracker’ and not a ‘black cracker’ and apologising of sorts with all of his contact details to show his transparency. Which was kind of cool and assuring. It turns out Advanced Guestbook 2.2 has a MySQL injection security hole that allows these guys to romp in and out. So upgrade to Advanced Guestbook 2.3 was his message.

Well young Nathan’s site is Uberdorks if you’re interested in the enemy. How about someone giving him some work in the field to keep him honest. I really hate to see brains wasted to the dark side.
