EC-COUNCIL Website has been Hacked, Snowden’s Passport on the Site

As of Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 8:00pm EST, it seems like the main website operated by EC-Council has been hacked.  On the site is an image of Edward Snowden’s passport and text stating, “owned by certified unethical software security professional -Eugene Belford”.  Eugene Belford, is a character from the movie “Hackers”.

Edward Snowden, the man who turned whistle-blower against the National Security Agency (NSA) and revealed its global spying program, was trained by EC-Council as a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).

The hack maybe a DNS hijacking attack,  the information below kind of point that way:



Non-authoritative answer:









As of Feb. 23, it seems as though EC-Council has not gained control of their website.  An update was posted on the EC-Council site stating:

“owned by certified unethical software security professional

Obligatory link: -Eugene Belford

P.S It seems like lots of you are missing the point here, I’m sitting on thousands of passports belonging to LE (and .mil) officials”
