A politically motivated hacking group who calls themselves 3301, appears to have compromised the website of Planned Parenthood. The politically motivated attack appears to have taken advantage of a vulnerability in an outdated version the Concrete5 website content management system.

The group was not able to access the file system and the compromise appears to be limited to the contents of the CMS database only. The group published a list of login emails as well as hashed passwords. The passwords have not been exposed at this time and the group was asking for assistance in deciphering the hash used to encrypt the passwords.

Planned Parenthood released a statement stating they are working with the FBI on investigating the compromise and expressed concern for the potential risk posed to those whose information may have been breached. However at this time the breach appears to be contained and only a limited amount of data exposed.

    3301 cicada? That's cryptography. That group, whoever they are, usually don't bother hacking. It looks like this is a group claiming the same name and logo. Whoever they are, I think they made a terrible decision.
