"The hacker started by auditing. thewarinc.com
Found an SQL Injection in the forums wich has been patched since then.
After finding the SQL Injection, then proceed to dump the user table.
And some of the admins had passwords like ******.

From researching the user table, the hacker found out that kewk
where using the same password on the forum, his email,
The WarInc and The WarZ. This was the point of entry.

============
Part 2 "The Shell"
============

The hacker then proceeded of logging in to the admin cp of The WarZ.
Then proceeded going to the plugins and adding a malicious plugin for executing basic commands.

Plugin contained.
***************
And then executed the command ******************** to get a more sofisticated backdoor up.

example:
*****************************

Then the hacker hid the shell in a discrete directory so the administators would not find it.

============
Part 3 "password logging"
============

This is where it is starting to get interesting. The hacker placed a password logger in the vBulletin login function.
Then we would be able to grab all login sessions with plain text passwords

============
Part 4 "Accessing emails"
============

About more than half of the employees used the same passwords on their email accounts along with their personal email.
So inside their email contained information about SVN, RDP, what hosting company they where using and conversations between
employees, witch contained some inappropriate content on their work emails....."

No, it's a shitty DayZ ripoff trying to grab money out of DayZ's colossal popularity.

Some facebook game?

And yes, the name is pretty original doesn't it?

Funny thing is, the hacker "sirgay" who uploaded server files for WarZ wasn't uploading serverfiles. There was a virus in those files. So i loled at everyone trying to set up files for the game.


The real hacker is named Nkrypted.

The game wouldn't be so bad if another company took over and fixed everything Hammerpoint had done, ie. the full game.

It's already done. Happened a few months ago. OP's in-house dev team has taken over production and is working on War Z V2. I.e no marketplace, no global inventory etc. And also. Why did you have to dig up all the old threads?

Seven Reasons -

1. I'm new and stupid
2. I didn't pay attention
3. Just testing the water, see if the forums are still active
7. I can't count
