TinKode Police in Romania consider that they may have detained the notorious hacker TinKode, who in the past has hacked into administration and military websites, revealing their deprived security.
The 20-year-old man, named as Razvan Manole Cernaianu, supposedly attack Pentagon and NASA computer systems, exposed security holes, and in print information about SQL injection vulnerabilities he had discovered. The Romanian Directorate for Investigating ordered Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) has said in a statement that the alleged hacker also offered a computer program to chop into websites on his blog, and published a video showing internet attacks he had orchestrated adjacent to the US establishment.
TinKode’s targets were not just base in the United States, though. For instance, in November 2010, the British Royal Navy’s official website was compromise by the Romanian hacker, who claims to have exposed the site’s passwords.
And last year, MySQL’s website was hit by – oh, the irony.. – an SQL inoculation molest.
Associated Press reports that the US Embassy in Bucharest claim that Cernaianu, who is supposedly an IT student, “used stylish hacking tools to gain unlawful access to government and commercial systems.”That may be so, but in my opinion over the last few years TinKode’s incentive has been more about mischief-making than the more hateful attack we often see, fueled by a wish for advertising via his active Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Perhaps now is a high-quality time to be reminiscent everyone who thinks it’s cool or funny to expose an organisation’s weak safety that hacking into a site is still a crime, in spite of of what your incentive may be.DIICOT is said to have worked with the FBI and NASA on the examination.
