    was an interesting link - it
    demonstrated the pwnage.

    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
    5.3.8 (http://www.php.net/).


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 1.8.2.4 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.

And again it makes me wonder how many other so called security companies are just as vulnerable.
