The parent company has responded quickly and the website of the supermarket chains them from the grid.
The looting of known and unknown hacker continues unabated. Will not for weeks, hardly a day goes by in which at least one reported burglary in databases. Now it also appears to have caught the supermarket chain Penny.
Having been some days ago over 50,000 customers account data from online hackers, are now apparently still unknown entered into a server of the supermarket chain Penny and there have stored stolen data. On the anonymous usable text-Hoster Pastebin.com system files have appeared, which were apparently stolen from the server Penny.de.
According to reports, the Group notes very seriously and has already begun with the investigations. The previously published data should be made to system files / etc / passwd and / etc / shadow, the penny-server was stolen. Here, among others, are also the names of admin and user accounts to be saved. Further more stored on the server, the password hashes and the name of Nexum employees.
Some of the names are already stored here on Monday the 18th been in July 2011 together with the account data online. The company Nexum is responsible for the websites of Penny and Rewe also. Customer data from the supermarket chain Penny were apparently could not find before. Presumably the attackers had also access to customer data.
In any event, the following English-language note indicates: “You can view the database table with customer data to steal myself, I will not do it” With all the burglaries in databases, the question remains how can you protect your data when large corporations seem unable are hacker attacks to fend for example, to protect the data from customers and employees from unauthorized access.
