The BadMash3 Exploit is just a phrase that criminal hackers made up to make their bug poaching scam seem more legitimate. In reality this is just a SQL Injection hack and extortion attempt.
These hackers are known by several names such as Bug Poachers, Cyber Extortionists, Website Hackers or Grey Hats.
One of the recent hacker scams is that the hacker will hack into your website using SQL injection vulnerabilities. They will make a copy of your database. The hacker will then send you an email telling you that they are a website penetration tester and they are just good guys trying to help you out. They will then either tell you the nature of the problem and ask for a bounty / finder's fee or they will say if you send them money that they will tell you how to secure your website.
In the industry this is known as bug poaching. Bug poaching is a cyber extortion tactic in which a hacker breaks into a corporate network or website and creates an analysis of the network's private information and vulnerabilities.
Here are the problems with what has happened.
If you receive one of these emails, you should do the following:
