Submission + - Sun's MySQL Site Hacked Via SQL Injection (

Trailrunner7 writes: The Web site and other Web servers belonging to Oracle Corp.'s Sun Microsystems division were compromised on Sunday by Romanian hackers who took advantage of a SQL injection vulnerability in an application running on the server.

A group of Romanian hackers using the handles TinKode and Ne0h broke into the Web servers hosting, the main Web site for the open source database product, as well as sister sites for the French, German, Italian and Japanese markets. The hackers posted account credentials for administrators, including the account credentials for Robin Schumacher, MySQL's Director of Product Management, and Kaj Arnö, MySQL's VP of Community and others.
