Kaspersky Was Hacked??

On Feb 7 2009, Kaspersky was reported to be hacked by a Romanian hacker who is known as Unu. The hacker used a simple SQL injection technique to compromise the one of the famous antivirus companies, Kaspersky. Many security sepcialists as well as the security enthusiasts have commented on this incident.

The hacker claimed that they can access all the data hacked but Kaspersky denied that. They can only know the tables and fields in the database but not the data within it. I have attached the links which are considered to be most technical discussions in regards to the security breach.

Enjoy ;)
