FoxNews commentator Bill O'Reilly's website hacked
    #8963634 - 09/21/08 03:35 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

200 loyal followers Wikileaked


Two days after someone broke into the email account of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, unknown intruders have hacked the website of conservative commentator Bill O'Reilly and posted personal details of more than 200 of its subscribers.

The breach into BillOreilly.com came as retaliation for remarks O'Reilly made on FoxNews condemning the attack on Palin's Yahoo email account, according to Wikileaks, a site that makes it easy for whistleblowers, hackers and anyone else to leak documents.

As proof, Wikileaks posted a screenshot of the BillOreilly.com administrative interface that showed the names, email addresses, passwords, and home town of 20 subscribers of the website. In all, information belonging to 205 subscribers was intercepted, according to Eric Marston, CTO of Nox Solutions, the company that maintained the O'Reilly website.

The hack came in response to comments O'Reilly made on Fox News about the posting of contents of Palin's email account, including pictures of her daughter and her contact list.

"I'm not going to mention the website that posted this, but it's one of those despicable, slimy, scummy websites," O'Reilly said, according to this snippet from YouTube. "Everybody knows where this stuff is, OK, and they know the people who run the website, so why can't they go there tonight to the guy's house who runs it, put him in cuffs and take him down and book him?"

It's evident from the remark that no one bothered to tell O'Reilly that Wikileaks, the first site to publish the Palin email, is a multi-national, bulletproof organization that has successfully withstood serious take-down efforts before. He's not the first conservative to have his lack of tech credentials in doubt. In July, Republican presidential candidate John McCain confessed he was still "learning to get online" and "becoming computer literate to the point where I can get the information that I need."

According to Marston, the hackers were able to access the unsecured list by trying a large number of variations of the website's administrative URL. He said all affected members have received an email and a phone call informing them of the breach and urging them to change their password anywhere they may have used it. No credit card information was stolen, and the site has since been completely locked down, Marston said.

BillOreilly.com charges $4.95 for monthly premium membership. The O'Reilly Store sells hats, mugs, T-shirts and other assorted schwag.

While the information exposed on Wikileaks may seem minimal, it has the potential to imperil the BillOreilly.com subscribers listed in ways they may not have anticipated. A case in point is Carolyn Carpenter, 68, of Henderson, Nevada. The list showed she used a six-letter word from the English language to access her account. Early Friday evening, when told she should change all accounts that used the password, she replied: "Oh damn, I use it all over the place." ®

That sort of childish behavior is ridiculous and definitely should not be condoned.

Even if someone despises O'Reilly, it's not him that suffered, it was the private citizens who had registered on his site.

More like "you can't talk smack and get away with it all the time."

I'm not saying Bill has no rights, just that he needs a reality check.  A few reality checks.

Ah, a supporter of vigilante justice, eh?  Screw free speech, is that it?  Say something controversial, and expect innocent people to have their private information splattered across the internet for all to see?  Interesting position you are taking.  I don't know that I agree with you.

Edit: and before you claim that I am calling O'Reilly innocent, it is the subscribers that I am referring.

The subscribers got caught in the crossfire, ya.

But the way I see it, is that Bill gets an inordinate amount of free speech, and isn't held accountable to his frequent misstatements.  It's not justification per se, but those who have no avenue to be heard are going to find ways, and this is what we see here.

On one hand, this is wrong, and the people responsible should be ashamed of themselves.

Who the fuck do you think you are?  The speech police?  He gets an audience because the people who listen want to.  You don't because the people don't want to hear your shit.  I suppose you think your entitled to air time on TV and the radio too, right?

Of course he is.  He gets hammered all of the time.

They have mouths, they have the internet.  They can post leaflets.  The little twats have plenty of avenues to spout their assinine  opinions.  The problem is that very few people want to listen to their stupid ass shit.  Fuck them, they have zero right to inflict themselves on anybody at all.
