WayBackMachine Hacked Again!

They’re bacccckk — Looks like someone over at The Internet Archive: WayBack Machine needs to buy a copy of Hacking Exposed: Network Security…. I’m getting PORN again!

I figure the attack took someplace between 11pm last night and 1am EST … as I was on the site late this evening perusing some old pages. What bothers me with this particular hack-attack is that Archive.org is a useful site for all parties – including hackers. I guess I’m getting tool old to understand. Darn rap music …

  1. The time is 12:15 GMT and it’s still broken, quite irritating as I only found out about it and started experimenting with it after I read about it yesterday. Darn Heavy Metal Kids…

  2. And STILL…

    The site http://www.archive.org is running Apache/1.3.20 Sun Cobalt (Unix) mod_ssl/2.8.4 OpenSSL/0.9.6b PHP/4.1.2 mod_auth_pam_external/0.1 FrontPage/4.0.4.3 mod_perl/1.25 on Linux.

    Anyone know if there’s a reason Apache on a Sun Cobalt boxen can’t be upgraded?

    Wonder what the (Open)SSH version is as well.

  3. I use the Wayback extensively, and I’ve created some bookmarklets that make it easier to look up pages in the archive.

    Now if they’d only figure out how to secure their site. Kind of scary that the archive’s creators, Alexa, are owned by Amazon. I’d think Amazon knew a little about site security.
