ASUS eStore allegedly hacked
Posted on 16 July 2012.
Another day, another data breach, another password dump.

Softpedia reports that NullCrew, a hacker group that claimed responsibility for the recent PBS and World Health Organization hacks, now claims to have compromised the online store of well-known hardware manufacturer ASUS (us.estore.asus.com).

To prove it, they posted usernames and passwords of the site's administrators on Pastebin.

“These accounts are from the ASUS eStore, and I've tried, and you can login to them. I also found it a challenge because I saw the GoDaddy ‘Security’ icon. That said they were verified for proper security. Couldn't stop after I saw that ;). Enjoy,” one of the hackers wrote.

Luckily for ASUS, the pastebin post has obviously been already removed.
