RedTube Files $6M Suit After Hackers Redirect Site
Operators of RedTube claim that hackers obtained its domain name server password and in July redirected its traffic to another website. The accusation, made in a filing at U.S. District Court in San Jose, does not name the identities of the hackers, but said that the “defendants did so with malice, ill will and intent to harm [RedTube].”Twenty “John Doe” defendants are named in the complaint. The suit brought on by parent company Bright Imperial Ltd. of Hong Kong seeks no less than $6 million, in addition to other monetary damages. The suit said the hacking took place on July 24 and lasted for a “period of time.”RedTube, which hires Sayreville, N.J.-based Choopa to host its content, said defendants obtained its passwords for its Network Solutions account and changed the domain-name server account so that they could redirect traffic to the unaffiliated website. At press time, it was not determined which site or sites it redirected to.
