CyberZeist, the hacker part of the UGNazi collective, claims to have gained unauthorized access to the systems of Comcast (comcast.com), the renowned US Internet service provider. The company has become a target ever since it revealed its plans to help copyright holders in the fight against piracy.
“Hey Mr.Comcast, I heard you were censoring your users, BAD, very BAD indeed! Before Looking into censoring issues, get rid of ur security issues!” the hacker wrote.
As usual, the data dump contains some server and database information, but the most interesting part is represented by user account credentials comprising email addresses, IDs and clear text passwords, totaling around 300 record sets.
Besides his anti-government operations with UGNazi, CyberZeist also specializes in finding and reporting security holes in high-profile public websites.
Last week, he uncovered
cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws in the sites of Intel and the Chinese search engine Baidu.
