Carder forum drops offline after hack attack

White hat cavalry shoot up black hat site

Top three mobile application threats

A Pakistan-based carder site has dropped off the net, after white hat hackers broke into the forum and posted details of the hack on a full disclosure mailing list.

Pakbugs.com provided a forum for ne'er do wells to discuss hacking tactics and trade malware, bank logins details and stolen credit card credentials. However this activity was interrupted after login details for the forum and email addresses were posted online following a break-in.

A previously unknown group called War Against Cyber Crime claimed credit for the hack. The group expressed the hope that law enforcement agents will begin an investigation against individuals named on the leaked list.

Meanwhile, the Pakbugs.com site remains unavailable. Net security firm F-Secure, which was among the first to record the takedown hack, said it reckons the forum is unlikely to reappear.

More details of the hack, including screenshots, can be found in a blog entry by F-Secure here. ®
