Directspace Hacked

These guys used to be a LEB vendor - they had $4 VPSes as I recall. But now it looks like $8 is their cheapest. I was with them for a month or so a couple years ago - their datacenter is in my home town. But I wasn't impressed.

Now it looks like they've been hacked:

  • Isnt this the place Francisco worked at :) ?

  • However, to be upfront, nodes have been accessed and compromised by an unauthorized source. We'll update customers as things progress.

    That sounds bad, really bad.

  • Didn't they camp BuyVM.com?

    Nah, that was some CN ex-client of ours that tried to run an extortion racket on us. After we kicked him out, the guy went over to DSN for awhile I think

    I think @Zetta was referring to sig tricks.

  • And that's why a "master" VPS control panel is a stupid idea. Trading security for simplicity... Now instead of having to hack multiple servers to bring a host completely down, you just have to hack a single server. But whatever, nobody ever listens to me when I say nodes should be completely separate and not connected in any kind of way.
