CIA Laptop Breached, DHS XSSed by “Game Over”

Cyber War News is reporting a malicious hacker that goes by the name of Game Over breached a CIA agent’s laptop. The documents leaked range from terrorist information to vice president visits. The leak occurred about a month ago however it’s just now being more widely discussed.

In related news the same hacker discovered a pseudo-XSS bug that allows anyone to play a video on DHS’s website. Basically appending the right parameters to http://apps.tsa.dhs.gov/mytsa/video_view.aspx embeds a video of the attacker’s choice. The bug still appears to be active for those that want to test it out.

Hacker who uses the handle Game Over @ThisIsGame0ver a while ago released a dump of documents from the CIA which have been obtained after an agents laptop was breached.

The documents are on Game Overs archive and contain information from terrorist to plans of visits from vice presidents. All the documents are in text format and this information has been leaked for some time now.

Also Game over has just announced a XSS attack on a DHS sub domain for the transport security administration.

The attack allows a user to embed a video or image and other text within the site.

Game over took the choice of a video and the comment “TROLOLOLOLOL”
