Warning!Linux Mint Website Hacked and ISOs replaced with Backdoored Operating System

Recommended Posts


The hackers are selling the Linux Mint full website's database for a just $85, which shows a sign of their lack of knowledge.


The hack seems to be a work of some script kiddies or an inexperienced group as they opted to infect a top-shelf Linux distro with a silly IRC bot that is considered to be outdated in early 2010. Instead, they would have used more dangerous malware like Banking Trojans.

"to be a work of some script kiddies" - atunci e mai mare rusinea. Daca niste "script kiddies" au facut asta, atunci altii mai buni inseamna ca pot face ce vor cu site-ul lor.


"Also, even after the hack was initially discovered, the hackers re-compromised the site, which again shows the hackers' lack of experience." -  NU arata "the hackers' lack of experience." ci arata cat de incapabili sunt cei ce se ocupa cu securitatea pe site-ul lor.
