Slashdot Database Compromised by 'White Hat' HackersSep 29, 2000, 03:15 (6 Talkback[s])
Visitors to Slashdot this evening were greeted by a story announcing that the popular site's database had been compromised by 'hackers from the Netherlands,' who had secured the exploit and e-mailed Slashdot administrators informing them of the compromise.
The story, posted under site founder Rob 'Cmdr Taco' Malda's name, read:
from the w00h00-departement dept.
A Slashdot editor acknowledged the compromise in a terse addendum to the story:
"We know about it, blah-blah-blah. Don't email us. I think it's safe to say that whatever happened, you'll hear the full details soon enough. Thanks."
