United Nations World Tourism Organization hacked and forum members’ data dumped
The United Nations World Tourism Organization has reportedly been defaced, hacked, and forum data dumped by TeaMp0isoN. A TeaMp0isoN spokesperson alerted DataBreaches.net to the incident.
The defacement was still evident as of the time of this posting.
The forum dump contains 1524 records with forum member usernames, email addresses, and MD5-hashed passwords.
In response to a inquiry from DataBreaches.net as to why and how they had targeted this site, TeaMp0isoN member “Jimmy” responded,
We owned the UN back in ’11
only seemed right to fuck with them again.
The forum was compromised by an SQL injection, he tells DataBreaches.net.

DataBreaches.net sent a notification and inquriy to UNWTO and will update this post if a response is received.
