250k users exposed in Naijaloaded hack

Missed this one while getting ready for Thanksgiving!

Darren Pauli reports:

Almost 250,000 user details of popular Nigerian youth forum Naijaloaded have been exposed after the site was hacked.

A hacker by the name of TheMrX uploaded a shell on the website and accessed its 42mb user database.

The database contained names, usenames, passwords and location information of 243,089 users.


The hackers said they would not publish the database, seen by SC Magazine, but said the US HostGator webserver that hosted Naijaloaded contained 79 other domains that may be vulnerable.
