Unijobs.com.au hack exposes over 600 passwords

Date: 2011-10-07 09:10:10

Unijobs.com.au logo The popular Australian university job website, UniJobs.com.au was hacked.

The usernames (email addresses) and hashed passwords ( what are password hashes)are posted on pastebin at http://pastebin.com/Nrd8MaKD yesterday.

The post included MD5 hashes and plain text password for cracked passwords. Most of the passwords in the list appeared to be the initial system generated passwords. They were mostly six digit passwords using mixed case letters and numbers. There were several dozen real passwords in the list. These are the people who are probably vulnerable to other compromised accounts.

The post only showed 629 of the 780 cracked, but that appears to be where the cracking was at when the post occurred. Most likely the rest of the list has been cracked by now.

Because these posts quickly disappear from pastebin, we have posted just the email addresses here .
