VENDETTA FOR BELGACOM

This is so hilarious I let you read the article....
How bad has the Belgacom service must be, that someone goes to that extreme?????
How do you eat that Belgacom?

Oct 20, 2009 -- An American hacker using the name Vendetta claims to have access to all the user names of Belgacom's internet susbcribers, reports Userbase.be.

The hacker claims to have exploited a hole in the BBOX modems provided by Belgacom and Dommel for VDSL2 lines. Even if external access to the modems is disabled, the user's password can still be read. The hacker has published some of the user details and has threatened to publish thousands more if Belgacom does not end its restrictions on bandwidth.

Userbase.be reports that the security problem has been confirmed by another visitor to the site.
