Akron-Canton Airport Hit by Turkish Ajan Hacker Group


Members of the Turkish Ajan Hacker Group recently breached and defaced the Web site for Ohio's Akron-Canton Airport.

In a statement on the defacement page, the hackers wrote, "Since today, you have been trying to bring Middle east under chaos, United States of America, which is controlled by Zionist jewish people to achieve their goals for centuries. While youre trying to draw the map of 100-200 years later from now, you are trying to make Muslim people fight each other and finish-waste themselves and, we can't just spectate it. You are a country which bombs its own state, kills its own citizens, and blames the Muslim for it and tries to equate terrorism with them. This only suits insincere people which lack of human values,you."

Cyber War News reports that the hackers also published 19 admin credentials, including user names, full names, e-mail addresses, contact information and encrypted passwords, along with 15,825 registered users' names, e-mail addresses and contact information.

In a statement on its Web site, the airport said the site was breached at 8am on May 25, and was restored and operating normally by 10:30am the same day.

Still, the airport acknowledged that the attackers had stolen data on Web site users who had signed up for contests within the past two years. "This included names, e-mails, cities and phone numbers," the statement reads. "No e-mail address passwords or credit card information was on the airport's Web site. If you have signed up for an airport contest in the past two years, you should change your e-mail password as a precaution."
