Typical story on how people make conclusions based on data that they don't understand
 
Washington Post backtracks on frenzied reporting of Russian hack attack against US power grid.

OpenCart makes use of the system/library/user.php file to handle the login process. As with other CMS authentication mechanisms, if a user does not exist, credentials are incorrect, or the user doesn’t have permission to access the backend, an error message will clearly state that the attempt has failed.

In this case though, attackers modified the file in a way that allows any credentials to be considered valid.

Attackers have found a new way to keep backdoor access to their hacked sites by simply commenting out the authentication mechanism in the OpenCart CMS.

Compromised websites are an ideal platform to install rogue third-party ads. Malware may create pop-ups, add new ad blocks or even replace ad network IDs to steal revenue from site owners.
Check your site now!
Hackers hide malicious ad content in ad network redirects going to AdSense. These attacks seem to target sites that have been defaced by hacking groups.

"International customers and users of disposable or prepaid phones are the people most affected by the software. But the scope is unclear. The Chinese company that wrote the software, Shanghai Adups Technology Company, says its code runs on more than 700 million phones, cars and other smart devices. One American phone manufacturer, BLU Products, said that 120,000 of its phones had been affected and that it had updated the software to eliminate the feature."
Security contractors recently discovered preinstalled software in some Android phones that monitors where users go, whom they talk to and what they write in texts.
