This attack on GiftHulk was a defacement (vandalism) attack and not a hacking attack.
The vandalists did not have access to any data stored at GiftHulk – it is stored at different location than the main “face” of GiftHulk and is double-encoded.
Any information that you have entered at GiftHulk was not compromised.
Defacement is generally meant as a kind of electronic graffiti, although recently it has become a means to spread messages by politically motivated “cyber protesters” or “hacktivists”.
The defacement was made possible after recent software upgrade at the hosting service and this security hole is already closed.
All the personal data that you enter at GiftHulk and your GiftHulk passwords are stored in a double-encrypted database. One of the encryptions that are used is SHA-1. SHA-1 was designed by the United States National Security Agency and published by the United States NIST as a U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard.
As an apology for the downtime we have released special Fountain of Youth code:
Enter “youaresafe” in the Fountain of Youth and you will be awarded with 10 Hulk Coins.
This code is valid for the next 24 hours.
