Paraguayan ccTLD Hacked, Redirected, Internal Database Leaked 44

MrJones writes "Last February 20th, hackers supposedly from Iran accessed and modified (English) the database, redirecting to another site. The hackers posted the whole database containing full names, national ID numbers, street addresses, phone numbers, and more of registrants. This is not the first time (English) that, managed by the 2 most respectful Computer Science Universities of Paraguay, was hacked. Since the entire database was released, local white hat hackers were able to calculate how much money was making annually (English) by charging $44 US per .py domain. The local CS community are urging the administrators to do all whats possible to protect the .py domain names since the hack was done by exploiting a simple remote code execution vulnerability. If they can modify, just imagine what they can do to banks and financial institutions. Maybe Google can helps us."

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
