Hackers aim for Connect

Tuesday, February 02, 2010

INTERNET provider Connect had its website hacked yesterday morning.

The company confirmed the site had been hacked, and visitors to the site were greeted by a digital spider and abuse directed at Connect's administrators.

"This was an isolated incident confined only to the Connect website,"Swantha Jayesingha, manager Connect Internet Services said. He said it had no effect on internet services, emails, hosting or customer databases.

"There was also no breach to Connect customer's username and password.

"There are vulnerabilities on the existing website which Connect engineers are working on to minimise the chances of the site getting hijacked again. Our engineers have managed to redirect all traffic to our webmail portal while work continues to rectify the hijacking. We are also reviewing all web security measures to ensure that any such intrusion is managed more effectively in future."
