Metasploit site defaced

Changes faxed to registrar.

The website for popular security testing tool Metasploit has been defaced.

A pro-Palestine hacker group KDMS Team defaced the sites by faxing a change request to the sites domian registrar.

Rapid7 said the DNS settings for both its main site and Metasploit websites were changed by the defacement crew.

“It looks like the domain was hijacked via a spoofed change request faxed to [domain registrar],” the Rapid7 statement said.

KDMS Team made headlines earlier this week for using DNS redirection attacks to deface websites belonging to cross-platform instant messaging service WhatsApp, computer security firm AVG Technologies, and anti-virus software company Avira.
