Hackers deface 'sinful' French Euromillions site

You have to be in it to pwn it

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Hackers sprayed digital graffiti on the French Euromillions website over the weekend as part of a protest against the "sin" of gambling.

A group identifying itself as the “Moroccanghosts” hacking crew posted messages decrying the lottery as the work of the devil in both French and Arabic after breaking into the euromillions.fr website.

AFP reports that the messages cited verses in the Koran that condemn games of chance and the demon drink.

Oh you believers. Wine, games of chance, statues all augur impurity and are the work of the devil.

Euromillions.fr now redirects to https://www.fdj.fr, the secure website of the firm that runs the Euromillions lottery in France – the FDJ Group. At this stage there's nothing to suggest that hackers got into backend databases, much less accessed any sensitive data.

The techniques used to pull off the attack remain unclear. ®
