Claim: UN Website Hacked


MYFOXNY.COM - A hacker has apparently targeted the United Nations (UN) website, releasing a list of the organization's potential vulnerabilities.

Information purported to be stolen from the organization was posted on the site Pastebin on Thursday morning.

The alleged hacker, who goes by the name Casi posed a message along with the information saying: "?I fighting [sic] for Internet Freedom, equiality [sic] & rights for all.?", but gave no other motivation for the attack.

New York based Identity Finder says it appears the UN was not following the most basic web security.

The hacker used a SQL injection attack (SQLIA) to fool the computer into revealing its secrets.
