Solarforce sales website hacked?

I was browsing solarfoce-sales website tonight and was adding a few things to the cart, when I noticed a strange thing on their page.

it says “19 Jan 2015 hacked by rexal scooterist”

Does anyone know anything about this?

This stopped me from placing the order, has anyone bought anything from there recently? If so, make sure there aren’t any weird transactions on your account.

I ordered a T1 there last week. Good thing I have my card locked for online purchases.

It’s not the first time, & unfortunately, probably not the last.

….Martini, do you have a stash of really cool pictures ready-to-go?? :bigsmile:

I see. I thought it is suppose to be pointing to a specific/ "custom" product page. Guess their intention is to deface their site.

I’m guessing it would be really stupid to allow, say, Adobe Flash or any scripts that try to run automatically when I open that web page.

Why do you say that? Did they wrong you in some way?

I’m sure others will disagree with me, but I’m not too worried.

My bank info is protected by Paypal. If someone wanted my name, address, or email address, they wouldn’t have to try very hard.

After working in the finance industry (specifically credit cards) I have come to realize that your “personal information” (Name, address, DOB, SSN) isn’t personal at all. Literally thousands of people have access to it at a whim.

I just rely on my credit card company’s liability guarantees to do their job.

Spam is another issue. Annoying, yes, but gmail does a good job of filtering it out.

No, they haven’t done anything wrong by me. Just adding a little history to the thread.

In case you missed it last time, & overlooked musicmagic’s link posted above;

THIS is what you (and the site owners) need to worry about:
https://www.google.com/search?q=website+hack+malware

A cracker who installs a script that runs when you click on their website, installing malware on your computer.

Recent example — one of many — just one off a page of search results:

Signed CryptoWall ransomware distributed via top websites …
http://securityaffairs.co/wordpress/28821/malware/malvertising-signed-cr...
Oct 3, 2014 – … the new strain of malware presents a valid digital signature and it is being delivered ….

_______
Yeah, it won’t happen to you.
But think of your grandmother.

EDIT — I emailed the Contact link at their site, when I saw the hacked message on their web page.

Do Solarfoce representatives read these forums?
It looks like they removed the “19 Jan 2015 hacked by rexal scooterist” from that page.
It would be nice to get some kind of feedback, or that they are at least looking into it.

My grandmother doesn’t have a computer! Wink

I still stand by my post. Sure, malware is an angle I hadn’t considered, but most things will get caught by my browser and anit-malware. If it was actually really “good” malware, why would they waste it on solarforce? Even if it is good malware, and does get into my computer, there isn’t very much for them to get that isn’t easily available elsewhere.
.

Like I said, that’s my opinion. Obviously Solarforce should get their act together, and people should always be careful online, but it won’t stop me from buying from them (unless this gets much worse).
