Hackers deface Panda Security's website following arrests
Backlash over arrests begins
TechLife | 07 Mar 2012 :
Hackers aligned with Anonymous have claimed responsibility for an attack on Panda Security's website shortly after charges were announced against five of the hacking collective's alleged members.
More than 24 subdomains within "pandasecurity.com" and other several domains owned by Panda were modified to show a video recounting some of the hacking highlights from Lulz Security or "Lulzsec," a smaller group aligned with Anonymous, according to a post on Pastebin.
Also released were e-mail addresses of people with accounts with Panda, along with their passwords and other internal server details.
Luis Corrons, technical director for the security company's lab, was singled out by the hackers for praising the arrests in a blog post on Tuesday. The hackers accused Panda Security of aiding law enforcement.
On Twitter, Corrons wrote that the company has not helped law enforcement find LulzSec members but that "I would have loved to be involved in that." He also wrote that "We have our team taking a look into the defacement right now."
The US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York on Tuesday announced charges against five people alleged to be involved with Anonymous, LulzSec and other groups and campaigns that hacked and attacked companies such as Sony Pictures, the analyst group Stratfor Global Intelligence, PayPal and MasterCard.
