Oh, this story just keeps getting better:
This, despite the fact that a primary Dawson College public
domain may remain compromised following a 2011 incursion by an
unknown hacker named "iskorpitx". That hacker appears to have
successfully uploaded a 'Shell' to the domain, leaving a public
'f** file' alerting administrators of the site that a successful
incursion had taken place.
As of midnight Monday, the Dawson College server still returned
the file using any web browser, despite credible Twitter alerts
about the compromise to @mydawsoncollege earlier that evening
from multiple sources.
Apparently the incompetent lying morons at Dawson College are far more
worried about a student who is arguably brighter than they are than they
are over exposing the information of their faculty/staff/students.
Fun and Misc security discussion for OT posts.
