I have recently learned a competitor running IIS4 got hacked last week.
I was under the impression that IIS4 has been superceeded, mainly
because of security problems, by IIS5 and 6. Is this the case?
They are back up and still running IIS4. I am not familiar with IIS or
Windows servers so I am not certain, but aren't they just in the same
position now as they were before they were hacked?
What type of crack? do you know?
IIS4 - WinNT4
IIS5 - Win2k
IIS6 - WS3
Not sure, but I imagine NT4/IIS4 is no longer supported by Microsoft -
certainly isn't supported here - if that means anything.
depends on the hack and what they did (or didn't do) to plug the hole.
are you sure IIS was hacked or could it have been some other part of the
o/s or a site script?
poor passwords and/or password security (post-it notes) are the usual
I'm intrigued why you would care about a competitor, but mostly a little
concerned that the host is still running NT4
whither a trophy?
