RIAA website hacked by SQL injection

Nothing makes a peer-to-peer user more happy than website of RIAA hacked by an unknown script kiddie. That’s exactly what happened 2 or 3 days ago, when Reddit published an extremely long SQL code which almost shut down the whole RIAA server. Meanwhile, another people tried the weakenesses in the code and discovered a way to display and alter the whole SQL database. As a result, RIAA’s Press Releases section showed a link to ThePirateBay instead of any content for some time.

There were more errors and security bugs in their presentation, for example an XSS bug which can be used to steal cookies and information. After 2 days, RIAA finally completely fixed the vulnerabilities and the website seems to be protected now. Anyway, this issue just shown this bloody organization is full of legal actions and lawsuing, but they somehow forget to secure their website. Besides, who wouldn’t want a TPB logo at their site?

    The database was deleted throught an SQL injection.

    But all screenshots postet here or elsewere are the result of XSS, which is something completly different.

    RIAA Welcomes Former FBI Principal To Command West Coast Anti-Piracy Unit

    WASHINGTON — The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)announced the hiring of former senior FBI official Kathy Leodler as the new Director of Investigations for its Western Region Anti-Piracy Unit.

    Leodler comes to the RIAA with 23 years of leadership and operational experience as a special agent with the FBI. In her most recent role as the Acting Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the FBI’s office in San Diego, Leodler managed a multi-million dollar budget and a 500-person staff. Prior to her tenure as the senior official in the FBI’s San Diego office, Leodler served in several different senior leadership posts for the FBI, including Assistant Special Agent in Charge and Supervisory Special Agent.

    “Kathy’s tremendous experience directing teams in sensitive and complex domestic and international investigations is supreme,” said Brad Buckles, Executive Vice President, Anti-Piracy, RIAA. “Her ability to utilize sophisticated techniques and tactical response will be a huge asset to the hard work we do to further our mission.”

    As the Director of Investigations for the Western Region, Leodler will oversee all anti-piracy RIAA operations in the western United States and assist law enforcement authorities engaged in music piracy investigations. The work includes investigations into music theft both in traditional physical form and also online. Leodler reports to Buckles, who directs all anti-piracy operations.

    “I am delighted to have this opportunity to head the West Coast office in the RIAA’s efforts to tackle physical and online piracy. The proliferation of music piracy and counterfeiting of American made products as a whole is a world wide issue with enormous impact to the nations overall economic well being,” said Leodler. “The RIAA’s West Coast office is committed to developing strong partnerships with law enforcement, local governments and the private sector to identify, investigate and bring to justice those individuals and organizations who unlawfully prey upon the music industry for their ill gotten financial gain.”

    Buckles added, “Kathy’s interpersonal skills along with her law enforcement experience bring the necessary blend of assets needed to oversee all west coast operations. We are proud to have her on board.”

    Leodler is a member of many professional associations, including the American Society for Industrial Security International (ASIS), California Association of Hostage Negotiators, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, International Cargo Security Council, Law Enforcement Executive Development Association and Society of Former FBI Special Agents.

    The RIAA’s Anti-Piracy Unit includes investigators in Washington and throughout the country who work with various law enforcement agencies to combat music theft. The Western Region Anti-Piracy Unit covers Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and Guam.


    The Recording Industry Association of America is the trade group that represents the U.S. recording industry. Its mission is to foster a business and legal climate that supports and promotes our members’ creative and financial vitality. Its members are the record companies that comprise the most vibrant national music industry in the world. RIAA® members create, manufacture and/or distribute approximately 90% of all legitimate sound recordings produced and sold in the United States. In support of this mission, the RIAA works to protect intellectual property rights worldwide and the First Amendment rights of artists; conducts consumer, industry and technical research; and monitors and reviews state and federal laws, regulations and policies. The RIAA® also certifies Gold®, Platinum®, Multi-Platinum™, and Diamond sales awards, as well as Los Premios De Oro y Platino™, an award celebrating Latin music sales.

    Here’s a different perspective, maybe try .not. putting TPB graphics on the hack, instead something a bit more ambiguous, last thing we all need is for MPAA & RIAA to focus their attention on one of our collectively favorite venues. My two cents worth.
