Connexion Dumps Data of California Government Website to Pastebin

The AntiSec movement appears to have turned to the FPCA (The California Fair Political Practices Commission) website and dumping contents of the website to Pastebin

Note: This is an article I wrote that was published elsewhere first. It has been republished here for archival purposes

A hacking team that goes by the name of Connexion Hack Team posted a tweet to announce their success of hacking the website. They said, “There we go everyone, big booty […] YAY! First .GOV hack”

The statement in the Pastebin post also contains the following:

Dear Internetz,

Our name is the Connexion Hack Team. We have hacked your website, because it needed to have a checkup with the SecDoctors. We have found many errors with your website and agree to tell them to you via twitter, @Connexion_Lulz. We also want everyone reading this to note that it was us who hacked them, and not some random person who copied everything and said it was theirs. We believe that all information that is hidden should be open to everyone. Even more so, since this is a government related site.

To prove that we hacked your website, we provided a table below of all the candidates, administration info, and the list of donators and who they donated to. We have done all this attempt to show the people the corrupt governments of the world. You may not be a government but you have connections. So therefore, we shall disrupt the internet ocean, revolutionise the world, all in the name of #AntiSec.

So that is all we have to say at the moment. Please enjoy and definently talk to us on Twitter.

The release appears to contain information on the database in question along with administrator login credentials. It also seems to contain a member list, a donor list (including amounts donated), and user names and passwords.
