A hacker collective named Dark Web Goons has been on a spree since the start of the year and now they have released a hack from a large Wireless Technology manufacturer named Tranzeo Wireless Technologies (https://www.tranzeo.com/).
Tranzeo Wireless Technologies (TSXV:TZT) leads the wireless broadband industry as a premier manufacturer of high-performance wireless network equipment that allows communities and businesses to communicate without boundaries. Tranzeo’s full spectrum of point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radios, WiMAX equipment, and Mesh network solutions are designed for Wireless Internet Service Providers, Governments, campuses, Military, Carriers, Enterprise customers, and Systems Integrators around the globe.
The attack and data leak was announce via twitter from the official @DarkWebGoons account. > [LEAKED] #FullDB – Tranzeo Wireless Technologies [#40k+] – goonsdata.totalh.net/TranzeoWireles… #DarkWebGoons. #PressRelease @cyber_war_news @hackread — DarkWeb Goons (@DarkWebGoons) January 10, 2013
The leaked data contains a full exportation of the server and its database as well as the /etc/passwd file. The databases that have been leaked include the core MySQL administration credentials as well as logins for the site and its bbpress forum. Some of the user credentials appear to use a common mostly likely pre set password but majority of them are encrypted. The leaked data was uploaded to the web goons website in the form of a text file. All together 20,000 emails were detected and many credentials do not come complete with them. So once again a company that deals with governments has been proven to lack security for its websites and users of its services.
