Submission + - Hacker blackmails ISP for unlimited Bandwitdh (adsl-bc.org)

abelchemoul writes: In Belgium, the biggest ISP (Belgacom/Skynet) is still capping the traffic on most of their offer (mine is 25Go a month), and most of other ISP do the same. Not for long? A hacker named Vendetta has published today login data from 1000 users. Apparently abusing an exploit from the router Skynet give to their clients, he threatens to release 1000 account data a week until end of november if the quotas aren't abolished.
From his post : "Be warned shitty ISPs, if you don\'t want me to share the exploit along with over 285.000 ADSL logins just stop this shitty bandwidth capping"
