FoxNews Twitter hacked

Says Obama shot dead.

Hackers trying too hard for their ‘Lulz’?

The hacker(s) began with a confirmation that they’d regained control of the twitter account. “Just regained full access to our Twitter and email. Happy 4th.” This lead them to recall that it was independence day and the nation must be just thirsting for a good ol’ brouhaha “@BarackObama has just passed. The President is dead. A sad 4th of July, indeed. President Barack Obama is dead”

Of course, Barack Obama is alive and well but the hack was soon claimed as work by “@TheScriptKiddie”. According to whats being said, Gizmodo also gives an insight as to their hacking choice referring an interview in which @ScriptKiddi3s outlines why they chose Fox News as a target.

“We are looking to find information about corporations to help with Antisec. Fox News was selected because we figured their security would be just as much of a joke as their reporting.”

Lulz 😀

But we in no way condone any of this. But facts are facts. The AntiSec movement, though ill-conceived, has served an important purpose. Which is how lightly major organizations we entrust with our credit card details and social security numbers, take safety of our information.

Here’s  hoping all this nonsense results in a positive outcome.
