CloudFlare hacked by UGNazi Hackers


 CloudFlare issued a statement admitting that hackers was able to access a customer's account and change that customer's DNS records.

“The attack was the result a compromise of Google's account security procedures that allowed the hacker to eventually access to my CloudFlare.com email addresses, which runs on Google Apps,” Matthew Prince , the co-founder and CEO of the company said in the statement.

“The password used on my personal Gmail account was 20+ characters long, highly random, and not used by me on any other services so it's unlikely it was dictionary attacked or guessed,” he added.

Surprisingly, all CloudFlare.com accounts use two-factor authentication. " We are still working with Google to understand how the hacker was able to reset the password without providing a valid two-factor authentication token."

After analyzing the incident, Google’s security team has determined that “a subtle flaw in the recovery flow” of certain accounts allowed the hackers to compromise the account.

This is where UGNazi steps in. The hackers claim that Prince and Google are both wrong.

“Nah. There’s no way you can social engineer a Google App. I don’t know what he was talking about. We did get in his emails though: matthew@cloudflare.com and mprince@gmail.com,” Softpedia quoted Cosmo, a member of UGNazi, as saying.

“We got into their main server. We could see all customer account information, name, IP address, payment method, paid with, user ID, etc. and had access to reset any account on CloudFlare,” Cosmo added.

Furthermore, the hackers plan on selling all the information they obtained on Darkode.

"the owner Matthew Prince thinks it’s secure. It’s obviously not, implying we got access into the main CloudFlare server today." The hackers stated as the reason for the attack.

UGNazi Hacker Cosmo Arrested After WHMCS Breach

Cosmo, one of the members of the UGNazi hacktivist group, has been arrested in connection to the breach that affected the website of the client management and billing solutions WHMCS.

On May 21, UGNazi gained unauthorized access to the systems of WHMCS and leaked around 1.7 gigabytes of data. At the time, Matt Pugh, the founder and main developer of the website, alerted the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

A few hours ago, other members of the collective found out that the FBI apprehended Cosmo.

“Last time was just questioning, but this time he’s actually being held. No other word from him,” one hacker told us.

“Well I’m sure he'll be out soon and back to work. He’s been arrested before so it’s nothing new to him. Basically WHMCS called in the feds and now it’s been 9 days into the investigation and they got one of us. But we left no tracks which is why I’m sure he will be out soon,” he added.

Also, he revealed that another member of the group, called Josh, hasn’t been online for the past couple of days.

Apparently, Cosmo was actually the one who social engineered Hostgator employees in order to get the access information to WHMCS systems.

In the meantime, law enforcement also seized the hacktivists’ website (ugnazi.com) and Cosmo’s Twitter account.

Ironically, one day before his arrest, Cosmo posted a picture with a message that read “Arrest one of us; two more appear. you can't arrest an idea.”

It will remain to be seen if he can get off the hook for a second time. However, the hackers seem to be determined to carry on their regular activities, a “huge release” being planned for the upcoming period.

UGNazi hacked WHMCS by Social Engineering attack

UGNazi hacke group have manage to break into the WHMCS, a company that provides billing and customer support tech to many web hosts . They leaked data and deleted all the files from the firm’s server.

The data leak contains 500,000 records including customer credit card details, username, passwords and IP addresses.

According to report, The hackers tricked WHMCS's own hosting firm into handing over admin credentials to its servers.

UGNazi also gained access to WHMCS's Twitter account, which it used to publicise a series of posts on Pastebin that contained links to locations from which the billing firm's customer records and other sensitive data might be downloaded.

"Following an initial investigation I can report that what occurred today was the result of a social engineering attack. The person was able to impersonate myself with our web hosting company, and provide correct answers to their verification questions," Matt Pugh, WHMCS founder and lead developer explained.

“And thereby gain access to our client account with the host, and ultimately change the email and then request a mailing of the access details. This means that there was no actual hacking of our server. They were ultimately given the access details.”

Hacktivists justified the attack by making unsubstantiated accusations that WHMCS offered services to shady characters, via an update to WHMCS's compromised Twitter feed:

Many websites use WHMCS for scams. You ignored our warnings. We spoke louder. We are watching; and will continue to be watching. #UGNazi

After the incident, WHMCS reported the breach on its systems to the FBI.
