Apple’s Korean online store defaced

“Apple Computer’s Korean online store has been defaced by an intruder. The attack, apparently carried out by someone working under the name ‘Dinam,’ who claimed in his online posting to be Turkish, was brought to the attention of Silicon.com last Thursday,” Dan Ilett reports for CNET News. “The defacement was removed from Apple’s Web site shortly after Silicon.com alerted the company, which has subsequently declined to comment on the matter. Jason Hart, CEO of security company Whitehat UK, told Silicon.com: ‘The defacer has managed to get administrator access to the Web server.'”

“The defacement–which took the form of a dozen lines of code posted to the Apple.co.kr home page–was documented on Zone-h.org. The hacker forum said Dinam had attacked a Mac OS X server running Apache,” Ilett reports.

MacDailyNews Note: Today, another attacker documented by Zone-H, “D.O.M.,” put up the old 6-color Apple logo and the slogan “Think Different” at the domain http://mail.apple.co.kr. See the defacement here.

  2. MUCH of ‘hacking’ is knowing some non-technical things about the system. The hacker could have slept with a sys-admin last night and poked around their home computer while they were in the shower.

    Apple isn’t doing anything new by using Apache as a web server. Would not Apache vulnerabilities exist cross platform (Linux adn Windws)?
