bandeira_bertiogaThe Brazil government has come under attack from a hacker using the handle JUMP!N PROXY. The attack has been aimed at the town of Bertioga's website (https://www.bertioga.sp.gov.br) which hosts information and links to services for the local town area. The leak was posted to pastebin in two parts and contains usernames/emails and a clear text passwords. Total count of emails and clear text passwords found is 6,147with many of the accounts just having usernames the overall count is much higher. Its really time that governments everywhere start thinking about security on a real level. Storing information in clear text is just bad practice and shows the lack of care they have for the people using the website.
