The first day of Kerbey Lanes Cafe was an interesting one.
A hacker named William Bannister broke into the cafe and stole passwords for everything.
He then used the credentials to access other cafe websites and then attempted to breach the server.
The cafe eventually shut down and Bannisters laptop was returned to him, which he promptly deleted.
It was also revealed that Banniss had created a botnet that infected a large number of people and was trying to steal their personal data.
The botnet was named KerbeyLanes, and it infected more than 15,000 machines around the world.
The hack has been traced to a number of groups and individuals, including the Anonymous collective, the group behind the Pwn2Own hack, and a few others.
However, Kerbey’s owner, Mary, said she wasn’t surprised by the botnet’s impact.
“It was something that was on our radar,” she said.
“I think the main thing that surprised me was that it was so much bigger than I thought.”
In a blog post published last week, Mary described the botnets that had been targeting her cafe in the past.
“A lot of the bot-infected machines were not on our servers.
We had not been aware of it,” she wrote.
“This was the result of people who were not aware of what was happening on our networks.”
The botnets’ main target was the Kerbey lanes coffee chain, which was not affected by the attack.
Mary said that while her company is still working to get the servers back online, she was “feeling pretty good.”
She added that while she does have other servers that are offline, she “never felt this bad.”
Bannist’s other attack, dubbed KBLO, targeted the cafe’s online store.
Bannis botnet infected more servers than the bot networks that had infected the Kerbals website.
“KBLO was not as big a problem as I expected,” Bannins blog post stated.
“There were more bots on my machine than on the Kerberos servers.”
The server that was attacked had a server ID of 989, but the server that BANNIS attacked was a server that had a Server ID of 681.
The attackers were able to breach this server and get access to the KerbalLanes website, which they used to steal passwords for the cafe.
The attack was carried out by the same botnet responsible for the Pawn Shop hack.
“BANNIS botnet has been inactive for a while now,” BANNiss explained in his blog post.
“We only had one server infected, and I have the servers working fine, so it was only a matter of time before it was fixed.”
Mary said she was surprised by how quickly it was fixable, especially considering the fact that it took less than a week for the attack to be detected.
She also believes the bot’s main goal was to make her company look bad, rather than simply to steal money.
“They had a big target, and they were trying to make it look bad for us,” she told Motherboard.
“Even though they did not achieve their goal, they did make me feel really bad about my business.”
