CNN, Fox News, celebrity Twitter accounts hacked
« on: 05. January 2009., 22:17:56 »


Many users got a shock when checking some twitter accounts like, Foxnews, Britney speaks, Barrack Obama, and many others. An attacked launched against celebrity twitter accounts is inserting crude headlines such as "Breaking, Bill O Riley is gay" (misspelling his name) on the Fox News Twitter page.

Images were taken of the attack on pages such as, Fox News, Britney Spears, CNN Anchor Rick Sanchez, and the Facebook page shown belove:







Twitter has responded to the attack by posting phishing tips inside of their blog to help users remain safe. The exploit seem to of come from a phishing scam sent to twitter users, which stole their account information.
