Palestine Elite Force Hackers Hit German ISP NetCologne

Hacker Cold z3ro of the Palestine Elite Force hacker group recently claimed to have breached the Cologne, Germany-based telecom provider NetCologne, and published user information on Pastebin.

Above the data dump, the hacker wrote, “Hacked by C0ld z3ro & LulzSecRoot from Palestine Elite Force / Long Live Palestine,” along with what appears to be basic information on the SQL injection vulnerability leveraged to breach the site.

The data published on Pastebin includes 15 user names, encrypted passwords, e-mail addresses, registration dates and display names.
