Indexeus.org Website Hacked

Indexeus.org website hacked by Pernicious Developers 2014, Indexeus is a revolutionary tool to retrieve and consult accounts. Over 168 millions entries are accessible with Indexeus.

According to Krebs, 100+ databases crawled by this search engine are either from hacker forums that have been hacked, or from sites dedicated to offering so-called “booter” services

The team responsible for Indexeus explains the rationale for their project with the following dubious disclaimer:

“The purpose of Indexeus is not to provide private informations about someone, but to protect them by creating awareness. Therefore we are not responsible for any misuse or malicious use of our content and service. Indexeus is not a dump. A dump is by definition a file containing logins, passwords, personal details or emails. What Indexeus provides is a single-search, data-mining search engine.”

The search engine was even indexing user accounts stolen from witza.net, the site operated by Hackforums administrator Jesse LaBrocca and used to process payments for Hackforums who wish to upgrade the standing of their accounts on the forum.

The hacker group have provided a screenshot that explains they had uploaded a backdoor shell to the affected website.

It is hard to believe that Indexeus creators would be swayed by such technicalities, given that  that the service was set up to sell passwords to members of a forum known to be frequented by people who will use them for malicious purposes.
