Subject: [defaced-commentary] Alldas.de Defacement Mirror .. Defaced


On Tuesday June 26, 2001, a hacker named 'ThePike' managed to deface
the European defacement mirror Alldas.de. Visitors to the site saw a
modified news banner on the left side saying "ALLDAS GOT CRACKED! READ
IT HERE". The front page was modified to include a small rant/message
from the defacer regarding current defacement activity. His message
warned other defacers that "security is not something funny" and
cautioned would-be defacers about using their scripts to deface
companies that rely on data security.

For details on the defacement from Alldas:
See http://www.alldas.de/?doc=news#11

For a mirror and the full text message left:
http://defaced.alldas.de/mirror/2001/06/26/defaced.alldas.de/

It is interesting to note the amount of commands the attacker
attempted to run and the likelihood that he shared the exploit with
others. Given the command attempts came from 10 different IP
addresses, one might wonder about the intentions of the OTHER people
involved.

Security web site Security.NL was contacted by someone, possibly from
whiskunde.org, believed by some to be involved in the defacement.
Security.NL posted an article (in Dutch) about the defacement, as well as
mirror and screenshots:

Securitywatch article on the incident:

It is refreshing to see Alldas.de provide details of the incident as
well as make a mirror available on their site. It is that kind of
integrity and honesty that is needed in the security community.
