Hackers involved in the attack are MindCracker and H3ll D who announced the hack on their official Twitter handle just few minutes ago.
Payza website blog has been left with a deface page along with a message and a screenshot showing clear-text passwords of registered Payza users.
In an exclusive conversation with MindCracker we were told that he has access to usernames, emails and passwords of the Payza users. He also added that he found a bug in the website which made it easier for him to access the database and the whole website. However, he plans not to leak those details.
Looking at the message it seems the only reason to hack Payza blog was to give the site admin a wake up call on poor security.
Hey Payza Hacked :P Is this what u Call Security ?Don’t Worry I’m not Going to Leak it :D (Hackers talking about the data), according to the message.
