Cryptolulz666 told me he exploited a SQL injection vulnerability affecting the website.
A few days ago, he hacked “The Standard Hong Kong” newspaper, he confirmed me that his choice is not casual, he wants to target organizations in Hong kong.
“Yes … As you seen in the previous hack I chose a big corporation in Hong kong and I succeded… this time also chose Hong Kong because I want to make an impact on this country.” he told me. ” no country is safe”
He highlighted the fact that a silly flaw like a SQL Injection could have serious consequences if admins ignore the pillars of security.
Data leaked on Pastebin includes data related to companies working with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce.
