It looks like these folks gained access via PHP. Stratfor was using a
Linux based system system, but PHP was version 1.8
from 2009 (perhaps with some back patches). Current version of PHP is
O really? PHP 1.8? how would you compile that on a modern linux distro?
how would you run drupal on top of it?
// $Id: default.settings.php,v 126.96.36.199 2009/09/14 12:59:18 goba Exp $
that is a line from the default drupal config file.
I agree that the php app was the most likely source of the intrusion, I
would guess that they didn't kept the drupal core and the contrib modules
up-to-date, and they were owned through some old vulnerability.
