The official website of Comcast Hometown Network (comcasthometown.com), a San Francisco Bay Area and Central California regional cable network produced by Comcast, has been defaced by UGNazi.
Besides defacing the site, the hackers also leaked 15 login usernames and clear-text passwords that allegedly belong to administrators. The dump also contains some server information.
According to the hackers, this was only done to “show how insecure an Internet service provider (ISP) really is.”
At press time, comcasthometown.com still displayed the classic UGNazi logo and the hackers’ online monikers.
We have contacted Comcast Hometown Network representatives and we’ll update the article as soon as they respond to our inquiry.
Yesterday, UGNazi took credit for defacing three domains owned by Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world’s largest theme park operator. Six Flags managed to quickly regain access to its websites and restored them.
“Six Flags was more of a taking the opportunity type of hack, we had the chance to hack it so we took that chance and exposed there lack of security,” Cosmo told us.
In related news, the battle between The Jester and UGNazicontinues, the former claiming to possess a large quantity of information, including the true identity of the hacker collective’s leader.
“Shhhh Shhh. #UGNazi – the quieter I am.. the busier I am. More within next few days. #ticktock” The Jester wrote in a tweet a few hours ago.
While some members of the group don’t seem to be intimidated, one of the hackers decided to quit. CyberZeist claims that his decision has nothing to do with the fact that The Jester has promised to expose UGNazi.
However, The Jester called him “agitated and nervous.”
In the meantime, UGNazi has recruited a hacker called IonCuber to replace CyberZeist.
