Maxney of Turkish Ajan has taken credit for the hack
Maxney, a hacker of the Turkish Ajan group, has breached the official website of Samsung Kazakhstan (samsung.kz).It appears the attacker has gained unauthorized access to the site’s retail management system (rms.samsung.kz). Besides defacing the subdomain, he also leaked a spreadsheet file apparently containing tens of thousands of email addresses and clear text passwords.
The spreadsheet file might have over 50,000 rows, but in reality, there appear to be only a few hundred user records.
“Sometimes, some things need to be changed,” the hacker wrote on the defaced page.
Back in May, the same hacker breached the website of the City of Lansing (lansingmi.gov) – the capital of the US state of Michigan –, the systems of the Akron-Canton airport in Ohio and the site of the City of Mobile police department.
