CNET - 14/07/2014

Russian hackers infiltrated servers of CNET by the name of W0rm and the Twitter handle @rev-priv8, who "posted an image of remote access to a server, with a screenshot of a shell proving a compromise of the site".CNET would not comment on the nature of the attack or what information was compromised, they have just communicated that they have fixed the problem. "The image posted on Twitter would indicate the hacker could access and upload files to the website. It's pretty difficult to say how they did it, though. One source suggested it was likely a content management system breach - something like a WordPress or Joomla exploit".
