Hacker Godzilla says the breach is intended to increase awareness of the importance of security on the site.
E Hacking News is reporting that hacker Godzilla claims to have identified several vulnerabilities in the Web site for the EC-Council, and has accessed the admin desk as well as the course materials for certifications including CEH v8, CHFI v4, ECSS, and ECSA/LPT 4.
"This could take a very deadly turn if played by the cyber terrorist," Godzilla told E Hacking News. "They are the same org who train DOD, CIA, NSA, NASA, etc. If a cyber terrorist infects this material with Trojans and malware the same content will be accessed by the defense people. And this is the easy way to enter into the network of defense. They should concentrate on security and in future should avoid such situation."
"Consider it as a security alarm for USA and Defence network, you will never know in cyber space who is knocking your door," the hacker said.
Two months ago, Godzilla published user names, plain text passwords, database names and other information from several Pakistani government Web sites.
