TeaMp0isoN Hackers Expose City of Glendale Site Vulnerability
The hackers chose not to exploit the security flaw.
Members of TeaMp0isoN have uncovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the Web site for the City of Glendale, California.
"No damage whatsoever was done to the site; the only reason why the operation took place was to show how 'security is just an illusion,'" writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs.
"One of the hackers contacted me after he found the XSS flaw in the site’s search engine and said that he was amazed to how outdated the website’s security was," Kovacs writes.
