The chronicle of an attack!

A Hacker can attack his own community?At the 1st August the site www.backbox.org has been defaced by a group of crackers known under the name of eMP3R0r_TEAM. Their page has been online for about 2 hours before the site has been restored back. This attack has been succesfully due to a misconfiguration of the shared server of a well known Italian internet service provider that hosts our pages which is for several days has exposed the home location of thousands of users to attacks by crackers!
