Nokia Developer Site Hacked

Nokia suffered an embarrassing security breach over the weekend when hackers penetrated one of its community websites taking names, email addresses, and other information belonging to developers of smartphone apps.

Although information from the site was taken, Nokia posted a message saying, “However, they do not contain sensitive information such as passwords or credit card details and so we do not believe the security of forum members’ accounts is a risk. Other Nokia accounts are not affected.”

Nokia admins quickly fixed the bug making the attack possible in the first place but not before the hackers were able to direct all traffic to a website that showed a picture of Homer Simpson exclaiming his infamous line, “D’OH!”.  Below the picture was a message from the hackers saying, ““Worlds number 1 mobile company but not spending a dime for server security! FFS patch you security holes otherwise you will be just another antisec victim. No Dumping, No Leaking!”.
