GlavMed Hacks U.S. Government Website

Garth Bruen writes: A report in LegitScript takes a look at Russian rogue Internet pharmacy hacking US government website. “As rogue Internet pharmacy networks become more sophisticated, even US government websites are at risk. Today, we’re taking a look at how a rogue Internet pharmacy linked to a criminal network operating out of Russia and Eastern Europe has hacked into a US government website. The Millennium Challenge Corporation, a US foreign aid agency, utilizes a “.gov” top-level domain, which is assigned to the control of the US government. Domain names ending in .gov are typically administered by the General Services Administration.”
