borderline yes, because he published the flaw before alert Netvibes team. But if he wanted, I was able *all what he wants*...

why the hell you advertise a criminal? anyway, the story is on Netvibes' own blog, and they say that the security problem has been solved. the guy is just a stupid cracker criminal, without not ethics, and did nothing special, just get some developer data.

nothing special? Fortunately he alerted Netvibes! If he wasn't there, a 'real' hacker could now do all what he wants with the site...

"Fortunately he alerted Netvibes!" Not true. If you read the Netvibes' blog entry, you can read, that (s)he didn't! It was just on a blog entry, catched by the Netvibes people.

And again, if you read the blog entry, you can read, that no general personal data was got. Just a developer's database, full with test data... The guy "hacked" a development system, not Netvibes.com!

This thread is locked as it's old... but you can create a new thread in the forum.
