It was reported a while ago that a website that was related to NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization), e-Bookshop, had suffered a data breach. This time around a hacker group called Team Inj3ct0r claimed responsible for targeting a NATO server with a private zero day exploit. They have posted a leak backup of 2646 files obtained from the server on file hosting website Media Fire.
Team Injector hacks NATO server!
According to the report by The Hacker News, their reasons for hacking is the development and financing of nuclear weapons. They claim to have hacked the server Apache Tomcat Version 5.5.9 using a 1337 day pivotal exploit which is a zero day exploit. A zero day exploit is basically a computer threat that tries to exploit computer application vulnerabilities that are unknown to others or the software developer. They go on to claim that they are also able to deface the NATO website but will not do so. They claim they will just take the backup of the server and distribute it on the Internet.
Things are not looking so good for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, since this is the second time they have been hacked ever since their public speaking out in their New Strategic Concept conference in Lisbon. The organization said that Anonymous should be included in the same list as Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
