Macquarie Uni Breached, hackers claim 1 million passwords using Zero-Day

Macquarie University has had one of its sites breached and defaced over the weekend in an evident show to demonstrate that its servers’ security are not being upheld to a sufficient standard.

On Friday, one of Macquarie University’s web applications, designed to assist international students in applying to study, was breached and defaced by two hackers going by the names of “JuliaDaRanga1000” and “AbbotttheFaggot2000.”

The defacement makes a number of disparaging remarks about the university’s security, mocking what they call a complete lack of security.

Since the server was running Oracle, it has become apparant that the hackers had probably used the new Zero-Day released this weekend.
