Submission + - hacked, redirected

MrJones writes: Last February 20th, hackers supposedly from Iran accessed and modified the database, redirecting to another site.
The hackers posted the whole database containing full names, national ID numbers, street addresses, phone numbers and more. This is not the 1st time that, managed by the 2 most respectful Computer Science(CS) Universities of Paraguay, was hacked.
Since the whole BD was released, local white hats could calculate how much money was making annually 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 thanks to a simple RCE vulnerability.
If they can modify, just imagine what they can do to banks and financial institutions. Maybe Google can helps us.
