 Wired News: Lamo Hacks Cingular Claims Site
Lamo said the hack was similar to his discovery of a security hole at Microsoft in October 2001, where the server was configured to assume that if a user could reach a certain URL that was otherwise unpublished on the Internet, that user must be authorized to do so and must already be logged in.
Cingular spokesman Tony Carter said lock\line has enabled password protection for the site and has now incorporated "obfuscation techniques" that scramble URLs so that, even in the event of a site compromise, additional records should not be easily accessible.
Carter says Cingular has nearly 40,000 vendors, and staying on top of them all is an "arduous" task, which the company continues to evaluate.
