I do not condone illegal activity. I have meerly exposed a flaw. What you do with it is your own business. Do the right thing and join me in reporting it via the following:

jeffrey_goodman@ziffdavis.com

So...

While browsing around the Fox News website, I found that directory indexes are turned on. So, I started following the tree up, until I got to /admin. Eventually, I found my way into /admin/xml_parser/zdnet/, in which, there is a shell script. Seeing as it's a shell script, and I use Linux, I took a peek. Inside, is a username and password to an FTP. So, of course, I tried to login. The result? Epic fail on Fox's part. And seriously, what kind of password is T1me Out. This is just pathetic.

http://www.foxnews.com/admin/xml_parser/zdnet/grab_zd_files.sh

Code:

(~) tinix@eslix $ ncftp -u foxnews_%1 -p T1me\ 0ut ftp.g.ziffdavis.com

Hah! I mirrored my drives and put them in a safety deposit box in case anyone came and took all my shit... That's why I was offline... I was using my tablet for about a week... and I don't have Xfire on there...
