A hacker using the handle “legionnare” aka ObeySec has yesterday leaked data from the directors guild of Canada.
The leak was posted to paste bin and the target website was which is the directors guild of Canada who is a national labour organisation that represents over 3,800 key creative and logistical personnel in the screen-based industry covering all areas of direction, design, production and editing.
The attack has also left the about us page on the website defaced.
The leaked data contains 10 administrator accounts with user names and clear text passwords and 2,031 User accounts with user names, email addresses and clear text passwords.
Its just another example of a website storing passwords in clear text and having that to come back and bite them in the ass. At time of publishing the website was still defaced. here
