10 Biggest Cyber Attacks In June
It may come as a surprise, but this month not all cyber attacks could be attributed to LulzSec. The renowned hacking group ’Pakistan Cyber Army,’ launched cyber attacks against the European arm of Acer , which compromised the data of about 40,000 users, along with source code stored on the server.
The stolen data appeared to include purchase histories, names, e-mail addresses, and partial addresses and phone numbers for a limited number of customers stored on acer-euro.com.
While its motives weren’t clear, the Pakistan Cyber Army said that it planned to publicly release the stolen customer data.
Some of the attacks occurred as the result of targeted phishing campaigns, while in other cases the hackers gained entry by exploiting easy-to-spot vulnerabilities in the company's Web site applications.
