MySpace security hijack: How your old account can haunt you

MySpace security hijack: How your old account can haunt you MySpace security hijack: How your old account can haunt you

A security researcher has revealed that anyone's old Myspace account can be easily accessed just by knowing a few basic pieces of personal information.

Galloway discovered the flaw in April and has been pushing MySpace to fix it.

At its peak it attracted around 75 million active users a month and these users have now been warned that their accounts are at risk of being hacked.

La Fiscal no asistió a la prueba del polígrafo — Tarek William Saab
La fiscal general de Venezuela, Luisa Ortega Díaz , condenó ayer la prueba del polígrafo a la que el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia (TSJ) ordenó someterla, medida que ella calificó de "arbitraria e ilegítima" y que considera que representa una "violación a los derechos humanos" y al debido proceso.

According to Galloway, all one needs to know to gain access to an account is the target user's name, username and date of birth - most all of which can be found with relative ease online (users' names and usernames are displayed on their Myspace profiles, for example).

But if you're interested in testing the security flaw (or stealing someone's account), hear this: As Galloway's post was picked up by numerous news organisations, Myspace pulled the recovery page that Galloway cites in her post (myspace.com/account/recovery).

The account holder's name and username are both publicly listed on their profile page. "If there is a possibility that you still have account on Myspace, I recommend you delete your account immediately". A version of the account recovery page is still viewable via an archived page. And apparently any account could be hijacked by just inputing the person's birthday, Galloway says, because Myspace wasn't validating users' emails. "It seems Myspace wants us all to take security into our own hands", she writes.

Ante esto, Bradshaw concluyó que "hay una línea fina entre la libertad de expresión y la censura". Comentan publicaciones de Facebook y Twitter, y hasta envían mensajes directos a la gente.

In May of previous year, over 427 million Myspace account credentials leaked online after a massive data breach. Those usernames and passwords came from a hack that occurred in 2012 but was never disclosed to MySpace users. Silicon also contacted the site for comment but has not yet received a reply.

As Galloway noted, most of that information is either public or fairly easy to find for most people, meaning that if hackers wanted to, they could fairly easily take control of any MySpace account. Click it, then go to your email inbox and look for an email from MySpace that will ask you to confirm the action.
