Submission + - Hackers sweep up FTP credentials for the New York Times, UNICEF and others (computerworld.com)

SpacemanukBEJY.53u writes: The researcher who discovered the Target and Adobe data breaches has another find: a 7,000-strong list of FTP sites run by a variety of companies, complete with login credentials. The hackers have uploaded malicious PHP scripts in some cases, perhaps as a launch pad for further attacks. The passwords for the FTP applications are complex and not default ones, indicating the hackers may have other malware installed on people's systems in those organizations.
