Get off the internet. Now. Either that, or gain some knowledge. Security is just an illusion, my dear friends. The database is really big. Thanks for leaving exploits :) And to think that you're supposed to be about education? You can't even handle your own business without being taken over. Maybe you should go back to school for internet security. Real security. Make sure it's not from your own employees. Obviously your company knows nothing about the world. McGraw-Hill is nothing. You gave the knowledge away. Only to be turned against you. Fake ass company if you ask me. Your database has been compromised.

The accounts contain usernames, emails, address, contacts and sadly clear text passwords. Archive on ozdc.net
