Linode disclosed back in April that its management servers and customer database were compromised and said at the time that HTP claimed responsibility for the attack. However, that security breach was the result a zero-day -- previously unknown -- vulnerability in Adobe's ColdFusion application server software, which HTP confirmed to have exploited in order to hack into Linode's servers.

HTP said that it managed to also compromise additional domain registrars, including Xinnet, MelbourneIT, and Moniker, which allegedly gave them access to around 5.5 million domain names.
