ANONYMOUS POLAND HACKEDÂ WORLD ANTI-DOPING AGENCY AND COURT OF ARBITRATION FOR SPORTâS SERVERSâ SERVER AND LEAKED PERSONAL DETAILS FOR GOD KNOWS WHAT REASON!
A Twitter account claiming affiliation with Anonymous Poland hacktivist group recently contacted HackRead with a data file stolen from the World Anti-Doping Agency and Court of Arbitration for Sportâs servers (WADA-CAS).
The hacker behind this breach did not state any reason or motive but looking at theirÂ Twitter handleÂ it isÂ obvious that they have been targeting random platforms.
In order to get a better understanding about the leaked files we contacted online data mining company Hacked-DB, hereâs what was found:
The total size of leaked folder isÂ 412MB which containsÂ 3,121 unique email accounts along with their passwords that areÂ hashed with old MD5 encryption that can be decrypt within seconds. In addition, there are names personal details of siteâs authors and contributors detected in the database file. The attack was executed by SQL injection flaw with SQLMap SQL Injection Automation Tool, according to Hacked-DBâs analysis.
List of most used email domains:
Maggie Durand of WADA-CAS hasÂ acknowledgedÂ the hack but claimed thatÂ WADAâs ADAMS database of doping results âhas not been compromised,â but that so-called phishing emails were sent to users of the database disguised as official WADA communications requesting their login details.
WADA was recently criticized by Russian governmentÂ after an independent investigation confirmed Russian state manipulation of the doping control process yet none of the Russian hackers claimed any responsibility for this attack, however, targeting anti-doping agency when Rio Olympics are at their peak says a lot about this attack.
The CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) is an independent institution, based in Lausanne, involved in resolving legal disputes in the field of the sport through arbitration and mediation. The CAS jurisdiction is recognized by all Olympic sports federations and many non-Olympic federations. The CAS registers more than 400 cases each year.
