US job-searching gov website hacked

A Ukrainian hacker group that initially hacked Monster.com has also broken into a well-known government job website. According to the Office of Personnel Management, the hackers extracted an estimated 146,000 names and other private information from usajobs.gov. USAJOBS.gov is run by Monster.com and hosts almost all of the federal government’s job openings. Job seekers generally upload their resumes and fill out profile sheets that are then available to government recruiters. This information is obviously a treasure trove for both legitimate marketers and scam artists and the Ukrainians allegedly made off with names, mailing addresses, phone numbers and email address of the victims.

The government says Social Security numbers were kept in a separate database and were not comprised, but it probably doesn’t take a genius to dig up a Social Security number if you have all the above information along with a complete resume. The Ukranians initially attacked Monster.com by gaining access to a recruiter subpage within the job website. After entering the recruiter page, the group siphoned off an estimated 1.3 million user profiles and resumes. The private information was then used to send out financial phishing emails to the victims.

    Hey, think about it, we’re living in a dangerous world; basically someone can destroy your life through Internet. Die Hard 4.0 had nice example of this. Dreadful! :o

    I’m really thinking about spending my next holidays without electricity, computer and cellphone, could you handle that?

    Are we really happier now, that we can do work by sitting on computer (like me! :D ), or would we be more happy to work in good old fashion physical labour. Actually, people die by their own hand (suicide) more likely than in a car crash!

    Atleast, when you are shoveling sh*t and your back aches, you know things can get better in your freetime. Now it really isn’t any different if I’m at the work or at the home. Sad thing really…

    amazing how american pond life turns this into let’s nuke anyone we dont understand. perhaps u dont understand them because you’re too dumb to go from tadpole to frog?

    i seriously wonder why some comments get deleted (wasnt that the hardcore plan a while ago) for being retarded in the retarded way (i.e FIRST) and others are accepted.

    That someone calling those people out having to write ‘not muslim’ is troublesome. How does one get to the point for calling out idiots, who are obviously american, and then stating ‘not muslim’.

    let the american (or greater israelis) cry on about september 11th like it was their holocaust. let the rest of us laugh at their ineptitude and sheer comedy of dumbness.

    Seriously admins, we know by your posts that you aren’t american ( or at least most of you), even though americans cant spell or do grammar, yours is mostly spot-on in a second language kind of way. and that is not an insult that’s a compliment.

    Well maybe its a good thing, but really all they have done is pissed of a huge amount of people who don’t need it. The only good thing that can come of this is for Monster.com to update their security. But lets not blame Monster.com it’s not like they are the ones that hacked it anyway.

    Here Official note from Monster.com.

    Security Notice
    Dear Valued Monster Customer,

    Protecting the job seekers who use our web site is a top priority, and we value the trust you place in Monster. Regrettably, opportunistic criminals are increasingly using the Internet for illegitimate purposes. As is the case with many companies that maintain large databases of information, Monster is from time to time subject to attempts to illegally extract information from its database.

    As you may be aware, the Monster resume database was recently the target of malicious activity that involved the illegal downloading of information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses for some of our job seekers with resumes posted on Monster sites. Monster responded to this specific incident by conducting a comprehensive review of internal processes and procedures, notified those job seekers that their contact records had been downloaded illegally, and shut down a rogue server that was hosting these records.

    The Company has determined that this incident is not the first time Monster’s database has been the target of criminal activity. Due to the significant amount of uncertainty in determining which individual job seekers may have been impacted, Monster felt that it was in your best interest to take the precautionary steps of reaching out to you and all Monster job seekers regarding this issue. Monster believes illegally downloaded contact information may be used to lure job seekers into opening a ‘phishing’ email that attempts to acquire financial information or lure job seekers into fraudulent financial transactions. This has been the case in similar attacks on other web sites.

    We want to inform you about preventative measures you can take to protect yourself from online fraud. While no company can completely prevent unauthorized access to data, we believe that by reaching out to job seekers like you, the company can help users better defend themselves against those who have attacked Monster as well as other databases.

    We are committed to maintaining an ongoing dialogue with all of our job seekers about Internet security and the steps Monster is taking to protect its job seekers. The Company has placed a security alert on Monster sites offering information to educate you about online fraud. This information can be found at http://help.monster.com/besafe/. We have also included information on internet security and examples of fraudulent ‘phishing’ emails at the bottom of this letter.

    Monster has launched a series of initiatives to enhance and to protect the information you have entrusted to us. Some of these steps are being immediately implemented, while others will be put into place as appropriate.

    We believe these actions are the responsible steps to protect the trust you place in Monster. We are also working with Monster’s hundreds of thousands of employer customers to ensure a safe and effective online job search. We will continue to share information with you about the enhancements we are taking to serve as your online career resource partner. We invite you to keep reading to learn more about how to use the Internet safely.

    Sincerely,

    Sal Iannuzzi

    Chairman and CEO

    And Monster.com getting hacked is news why? Oh yeah, because we can fit US Gov in there and get all the Euro-basement dwellers excited. Yeah, take that, that’ll show those US scum!

    It’s almost as pathetic as the response most of the mental midgets here have to any comment they disagree with — “Must be an American”. Yeah, blind ignorance and frothing bigotry so displays your inherent superiority… Not. I mean, it just makes so much sense to assume that the richest and strongest country the world has ever seen just must be filled with nothing but fat mental retards, right? All 300 million of them! And, of course, anyone who is fat and/or stupid must be American because the rest of the world is filled with nothing but fit, brilliant, beautiful people, right? Yeah, that makes perfect sense, mindless stereotypes ftw!

    This site makes me weep for the future of Europe.
