Please don’t mind, its 5th of  November” slogan for today !
Anonymous Hackers hacked into “Telecom  Italy” (www.telecomitalia.it) and dump Social Security Number,  Social Insurance Number, 30000 credentials and lots of vulnerabilities  exposed.
In a blog post hackers said,”Telecom Italy boasts 3000 XSS error and  vulnerabilities that allow third parties to access the “htaccess” and other  sensitive data. Anonymous will not publish sensitive information of individual  users. This one can define a simple notice to show that you do not have  appropriate security measures. In fact it is very simple appropriated  credentials and social security numbers.”
3000 Cross site scripting ? wow its a huge  number ! Hackers upload some paste regrading the hack as given below:
1.) Social Security Number and Social  Insurance Number : Link 1
2.) Some Credentials (sample  only) : Link 2
In credentials disclosure we notice an  interesting password, hacker mention “antivirus.telecomitalia.it use  passwords like: name12345“. That’s the another reason why websites got  hacked.
3.) In another paste hackers also  disclose some Cross-site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities, a apache  error and Directory Listing vulnerability : Link 3
Hackers said that they will not release  complete database of all 30000 users, in statemnet “As said before the data  released are nothing compared to the data in our possession. About 30,000  stolen  credentials (such data will not be published in this) ask for a review  of your  services otherwise expect updates!
