The Story of how Hacking Team got Hacked

I’ll throw an allegedly in here; Pastebin has a story written by the fellow who hacked Hacking Team about how it was accomplished.

Lessons learned are, again:

  • Change default passwords
  • Patch your systems
  • Log account and network activity – identify suspicious activity
  • Secure your backups
  • After sending passwords by email delete the email and change the password
  • Use two-factor authentication everywhere possible
