Source: Syrian Electronic Army Hacks Global Phone Directory Truecaller
Softpedia said:After taking a break to work on their website, hackers of the Syrian Electronic Army are back. Their latest victim is Truecaller, the world’s largest collaborative phone directory.
“Sorry @Truecaller, we needed your database, thank you for it,” the hackers wrote on Twitter.
The Syrian Electronic Army has told E Hacking News that they’ve managed to breach Truecaller’s systems by exploiting a vulnerability in the company’s outdated WordPress installation.
They claim to have stolen over 7 databases, including the main database which is 450GB in size.
According to the pro-Assad hackers, the database contains information that gives them access to over 1 million Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Gmail accounts.
They’ve also leaked online what appears to be the login credentials for the site’s databases.
