Default Dutch PKI provider's web site security breach under investigation

From http://h-online.com/-1392605

The web site of Gemnet, subsidiary of KPN and provider of PKI certificates to the Dutch government, succumbed to a hacker's attack according to Webwereld reportsDutch language link. It appears that the attackers gained access to a database on the server managed by a PHPMyAdmin instance which was not protected by a password.

The attacker then used this web access to get to the database without a password. The company was informed that it was leaking information on Wednesday night and has been taken off the air by parent company KPN, who then launched an investigation.
