About 100 .be Sites were hacked since 29th october by Turkish hackers
The turkish hackercampaign against .be sites is not slowing down, but it luckily didn't take the numbers and efforts from a real campaign that brought down substantial parts of the internet or the websites in some other countries. Let's hope it will stay that way. Or better that they cool down and understand that this cyberrioting has nothing to do with patriotism. It doesn't convince one man that they should think or act otherwise, on the contrary.
the numbers of hacked .be sites are still higher than normal and some like
and so on and so on..... not very big sites but like a botnet many small ones make one big network .....
Some of the sites that are being defaced this weekend were also defaced in the last several months. It could be that some hackers-crackers are only going through a list and methods that were successful before.
At the other side it is sorry to see that even professionals only put back their sites without closing the security holes that were responsable for the first hack and without controlling their website on other security problems. If you can't stand the heat, don't host yourself on the internet, go to REAL professionals (I am not linked to any of them - you don't see any advertising around here don't you ?).
The political question is if this campaign stays going the way it does if it isn't time that someone of something starts getting the responsabilities and instruments as written in the New Telecom Law to coordinate the Belgian ISP's and maybe major hosters and DNS to take appropriate measures. Or do we really have to wait untill a big major Belgian websites goes down ?
So if you were defaced-hacked last year look again at your logs and watch out for the scans and attacks coming your way. Also recheck your site for any other mistakes. There are some free opensource tools to do this quite efficiently like Nmap and metasploit. More such tools you can find on http://freeware.skynetblogs.be between the other free stuff.
