Candle Power Forum "ownz by Federal"
« on: August 29, 2013, 02:24:50 PM »
Welcome to the 0day.  CandlePowerForums.com was hacked this morning by a group calling themselves 'Federal'.  Not much else know at this time.  I certainly hope they are able to recover as quickly as possible.  Apparently a number of vBulletin sites have been hacked due to a vulnerability in the software.  Fortunately we don't run on vBulletin and we are crossing our fingers we are configured properly to avoid a hack ourselves.

This is great news, I haven't heard of this "Federal" before but I'm sending him/them a lot of bitcoins for this gracious act.

Also, it's good we weren't hacked.

EDIT: Just realised they took down a LOOOOT more forums, and that ain't cool, yo!

Did you notice this in the email address. Cybercriminalite. Those last four letters. Could it of been one of us?
I hope their back up and running soon if not now.
When the big picture is to big, look for a point you can start at and build from there.

I looked and it looks like they hacked more than flashlight forums.
Eg: gaming, etc.

If by chance it WAS, lets find them and give them a flashlight with a badly off centred LED, squeaky rough threads, runs on 25xD batteries and outputs 2 lumens.
