Explanation of the Hack
Stratfor was first discovered to have an open MySQL server by an anonymous hacker called Hyrriiya who then passed on the information to sup_g now known as Jeremy Hammond. MySQL by default has the user set to root with an empty password, this was the hole stratfor suffered from.
To access the server you do:
mysql -u root -h <stratfor>
