Fox News website has huge security gap

Written by David Stellmack

“Fair and balanced” server off kilter?


A huge security hole was found in Fox News Network Web site that allowed unauthorized Web browser access to file directories and other sensitive Website content. 

Security analysts found the hole today and believe that a systems administrator may not have correctly set up the permissions; the analysts claim that the security breach has now been corrected. 

An FTP connection was also found to www.ziffdavis.com, plus a username and a password in a bash file (which is a Linux shell script to automatically log in to an FTP server). 

The immediate damage done may not be substantial, yet the fact that the structure of the Web site was unprotected for a period of time could have provided enough information to hackers to subject the server to future attacks.  Fox News had no comment.
