Microsoft - Hacked as well !!!
« on: 23. February 2013., 06:48:38 »


Apple, Facebook, and Twitter recently reported security breaches, apparently linked to a developer website that infected programmers' computers after they visited it.

Now Microsoft says it was hacked, too—by similar means, according to a statement posted by general manager Matt Thomlinson: http://blogs.technet.com/b/msrc/archive/2013/02/22/recent-cyberattacks.aspx

Thomlinson said Microsoft was being targeted by "determined and persistent adversaries."

He didn't specify who those were, but many have linked the recent attacks on Internet companies with intrustions by Chinese hackers into the systems of publishers like the New York Times and Bloomberg.

It's not clear, however, that the recent attacks originated from China.

Mike Isaac at AllThingsD recently identified the website in question as iPhoneDevSDK, a site popular with mobile-app developers: http://allthingsd.com/20130219/this-is-the-site-likely-responsible-for-the-recent-major-tech-company-hacks/

iPhoneDevSDK recently told users that it discovered that an administrative account on its site had been hacked, which allowed hackers to inject infectious code into its Web pages. The site says it believes its software is otherwise secure.

amazing how much "we" lost control over the internet.

Still, better than an Internet ruled by the Big Three :s

Karma?

I wonder how the next World War III seams like specifically in the web.
The only thing I know is that World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

Orginal quote:
"“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
― Albert Einstein "
Their is two easy way to configure a system!
Every thing open and every thing closed.
Every thing else is more or less complex.
