Al-Qaeda Electronic Army and Tunisian Army recently attacked several U.S. Government websites as part of their operation called "#opBlackSummer" - an operation against America.

The hackers claim they will send these IP address details to their Chinese hackers team to do some malicious work.

TCA said this operation will continue till September.  The hackers said they are planning to "give a great surprise for the USA" on 11th Septemebr (9/11), the date on which al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. and hacked by Tunisian Cyber Army & Al-Qaeda Electronic Army

Following the Pentagon and security breach, the Tunisian Cyber Army and Al-Qaeda Electronic Army has attacked two more United States Government websites.

Today, they have targeted the U.S. customs and Border Protection ( and Office of Personnel Management ( 

The team managed to extract the information from the target database by exploiting the critical SQL Injection vulnerability in those websites.

TCA team told EHN that they have compromised information such as username, encrypted passwords(they managed to crack), private emails.

In an email sent to E Hacking News, the hacker provided the vulnerable link of both websites.  For a security reasons, we are not disclosing the links here.

Hackers infect Pentagon admin by exploiting XSS vulnerability

Recently, EHN received a news report from Tunisian Cyber Army and Al Qaida Electronic Army in which the hackers claimed to have infected the Pentagon administrator, as part of their on going operation called "#opBlackSummer".

The attack was happened after hackers identified a reflected cross site scripting(XSS) vulnerability in one of the sub domain of Pentagon (

POC:"><script>alert("xss by tca and AQECA on pentagon")</script>

xss vulnerability

The hacker managed to exploit this vulnerability for sending malicious payload to the admin of Pentagon. Hackers claims that they got success in infecting them.

Hackers said they compromised  some important file and steal cookies from the pentagon mail. The security breach was done with collaboration with Chinese hackers.

At the time of writing, the vulnerability is not fixed. If the TCA claim is true, then this one will be the best example that demonstrate the severity of simple reflected xss. Yesterday, i have sent notification to Pentagon team about the vulnerability but there is no response from them.

In another mail, the team said the have hacked the with SQL injection vulnerability.
