Breaches and leaks

  • Zillow: a real-estate website, had an attacker manipulate the estimated price on a giant mansion in Bel-Air, dropping its price by $60mil and announcing an open house. The owners aren't too pleased.
  • Elsevier: the generally quite disliked paywall-for-science-papers company had a Kibana server where passwords would stream by in plain text.
  • A new batch of user credentials of six companies has been put on sale, by the same hacker who previously sold over 840 million user records: link.
  • Someone hacked into the tornado sirens of two Texan towns and set them off in the middle of the night: link.
