Chinese hackers steal 9 million items of personal information from South Koreans

Published by at 4:12 pm under Hacking for money

Coming from the Korean Herald:

Police are investigating the leak of about 9 million items of personal information from the internet, allegedly obtained by a China-based hacker and misused by online Korean moneylenders.

Four private loan brokers in Seoul bought the stolen data for 15 million won ($14,900) from the hacker who allegedly broke into about 2,000 local websites in May 2006 using a computer program called “HDSI 2.0,” the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said.

    HDSI is a well-known SQL-injection program written by a Chinese programmer. It should not be confused with the mass-sql injection programs that Dancho has blogged about. This is a tool that one would use against a single site at a time. I have a couple of versions of this tool plus another Chinese SQL-injection tool called NBSI. If you can help me xlate some of the buttons, I can do a write up for the blog.

    Send me what you have and I will get you a translation of the buttons on the interface.

    Eventually, you have to give us a summary of that ZOO of malware you have collected. :) I picture cages and whips to keep them under control!
