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:
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: http://attrition.org/errata/charlatan/ec-council/ -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”
