Liebert Media Site Defaced by Hackers

Add Your Comments

Cooling equipment manufacturer Liebert has restored the media relations area of its web site, which was defaced by hackers Tuesday. I first noticed this while checking RSS feeds last night. Instead of corporate news or product-related press releases, the entries in the Liebert feed said “hacked by …” followed by the handles of two hackers, who substituted their names for the headlines on the company’s press releases which in turn were broadcast to recipients of the company’s RSS feed.

Liebert isn’t alone, as the same attackers appear to have defaced press releases on several other sites using ASP-based content management systems.
