Heise.de is one of the biggest technology-news-portals, which started back in 1996. Since then a lot of things have changed. For example heise.de now has different categories for every topic. In short terms: all nerds, geeks, technology-affine people cannot miss Heises’ news reports if they want to on top of newest technology news. However, a such a big portal can sometimes be vulnerable, too.
We contacted “heise security” and told them about this complex attack scenario. Some hours later we received a friendly email that they’ve forwarded the information to the responsible person. They were very thankful and on the next morning the issue was resolved by removing the “back”-link.
We would like to thank Heises Team for the competent handling, the (very) fast fix and all the awesome articles we can read every day ;)
