Commentary From: Editor InfoGuerra (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I would like to comment that xl.com was defaced many times between
Saturday and Wednesday, not only two times. I wrote an article about it,
too, but, as you may remeber, my articles are only in Portuguese. But I'd
like do explain a little bit more about it.
In fact it was a series of redefacements, but related to a company like
Lucent it shouldn't happen, for sure. Safemode has two mirrors, and I have
the others. You can see it at:
Saturday (07/21/2001), by Demoniados.Br -
Monday (07/23/2001), by Quarai Hack Force -
Tuesday morning (07/24/2001), by Feltonspray -
(it seems there was another redefacement again by Quarai Hack Force, after
Feltonspray redefacement, but I didn't see it)
Tuesday night (07/24/2001), by an unknown person -
Wednesday (07/25/2001), again by Quarai Hack Force -
All the defacements at InfoGuerra's site I saw. Wednesday I called the
Lucent's Brazilian Director and he couldn't explain what was happening. He
suggested that I should contact US Lucent, so I did it by e-mail, but I
haven't any response.
There's another thing. VNUNet says the site runs Netscape-Enterprise on
Irix. Well, this is half the truth. What runs this system is
http://www.xl.com . This URL was online and normal all the time (and still
is). But http://xl.com, wich was defaced, aparently runs IIS. This URL was
defaced one month ago by the sadmind/IIS worm
In fact, there are two servers, one for http://www.xl.com, wich is located
at Lucent's network, and one for http://xl.com , wich is located at Excel
Switching Corporation, bought by Lucent.
I also would like to say that I don't run a mirror site and don't intend
to do it. InfoGuerra is a news site, but sometimes, when it's convenient,
I take some mirrors. And last, but not least, these commentaries are just
for your knowledge and have no other intentions. I respect Attrition's
work and just wanted to share some information with you : ).
