Hacker Erased Spammer鈥檚 Database

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:07 pm

The Israeli National Institute of Standards have being practicing in a controversial activity. In the name of 鈥渉elping to inform the public鈥? the National Institute of Standards hired a company to send email messages thru the company鈥檚 distribution list (in other words spam list).

An Israeli hacker tired of getting these spam messages have taken an action and hacked to the server where the email database is stored. After he got access to the database he deleted all the data from the spammer鈥檚 database, deleted all user names and passwords to the database and changed the database鈥檚 admin password.

After the third time I got these spam messages I managed to hack into their management system and deleted their entire database, said the hacker, identified himself as Anti-Spammer.

    he should have started with adding the Israeli National Institute of Standards CO:s to the spamlist and see what happens..

    And ofcourse delete the rest of the names from the list…

  26. US-Sysadmin Says:

    I wish this guy would “open source” his methods, so the rest of us could join the battle! I have DREAMED of doing something like that!!

  27. IP Says:

    Israeli National Institute of Standards has a backup, so they can restore database and continue spamming. Resonance they get from the press about a ‘Hack” may deter them from continuation.
