As I’m sure many of you HackTalkers have read, UFC.com was recently defaced which led to Dana White essentially daring Anonymous to do it again.
More after the fold
I see stuff like this time and time again, a hacking forum will get pwned by some group and after picking up the pieces, the site which got hacked will talk crap about their attackers and essentially dare them to try it again. Inevitably the site will be hacked again because the administrators of the site are still leaving gaping security holes in their site. This is something that has been done time and time again.
This doesn’t relate only to hacking either. In pretty much every walk of life, if someone kicked your ass once you can be certain they can do it again, especially if you egg them on.
This was the case with Dana White who egged Anonymous on to try to hack UFC again and even went so far as insulting Anonymous members.
Shortly after egging them on Dana White once again became a household name as his name was all over the twittersphere attached to a very interesting link: http://pastebin.com/D1zRYSYd Dana White was dox’d. Anonymous didn’t stop there though, in their response to Dana’s comments they went ahead and defaced UFC once again (for the hat trick) and posted this : http://www.cyberwarnews.info/2012/01/27/ufc-website-hacked-and-defaced-by-anonymous-after-dana-white-starts-trouble-opufc
In the end if you have a target on your back and you’ve already been owned, why talk crap; it’s only going to get you messed with more and it will give your attackers fuel with which to continue attacking until they eventually get through.
Cya in cyberspace.
