When hackers steal login information from one site, they often try the same combinations against other sites. You will see that the hackers have obtained access to hosting environments which host various websites like Domino’s and so on. In the past, many organizations admitted to having had their systems breached by Rex Mundi. However, there are some controversial cases as well.
For instance, in the case of Belgian telecoms company Numericable, the company denied that the hackers could have gained access to customer info. Shortly after, the cybercriminals published what appeared to be contact information for around 6,000 people. In the summer of 2013, Rex Mundi claimed to have breached the systems of Belgian recruitment agency Habeas. After trying to blackmail the company, they published a message admitting that most of the data downloaded from Habeas’ servers was “junk.”
