Hacker Advertising Cheap Access to .mil, .edu, .gov Sites

Security firm Imperva reports that a hacker is selling access to military, educational, and government websites for bargain basement prices ranging from $55-499. Imperva, which reported on the hacker on Friday, believes that he was able to gain access to the sites through a SQL injection technique.

The priciest hack is access to the homepages of the U.S. Army, National Guard, and Army Forces, goes for $499 each. The Department of Defense, surprisingly, is lower-priced, and access only costs $399.

In addition to these and other .mil, .edu, and .gov sites, the hacker is also selling personal data at the going rate of $20 for 1,000 names, addresses, and telephone numbers. As an example, Imperva displays a redacted screenshot of University of Connecticut staff members' information.

 The hacker will also scan a site for security vulnerabilities for a mere $2, "hack a normal website" for $10, hack a "high-profile website" for the open-ended $10+, or give a customer 3MB of random hacked accounts for $65.

Truly, this hacker is sort of the Target, or even Wal-Mart of hacks, with a large selection of wares. It's truly frightening, especially with his sale on "normal" websites and person information.

I think they're actually all "nasty".

The image must have been created by the same guy that does art for the Disney video boxes.

Scary stuff.... I was reading this article once on BBC about the Online war between China, India and the States (other countries as well). Hackers from China are attacking other countries while the government claims they know nothing about it.

I wouldnt be surprised at all if Military had an entire sector and budget allocated towards online-warfare
