Hezbollah One Twitter Zero – Popular Networking Site Twitter Hacked by Political Group – December 20, 2009

L I N K If you couldn’t get into your Twitter account this story tells you why.  Apparently a middle eastern group allegedly connected to Iran was upset and hacked into Twitter.

“(uk)Tory MP Patrick Mercer, chairman of Parliament’s counterterrorism sub-committee, said: “Iran is one of the most predatory governments in terms of using the internet and e-attacks.

“It seems this was a revenge attack for Twitter’s role in unsettling the country’s elections.”

One message in Arabic left by the hackers read, “Hezbollah is victorious” in a reference to the Islamic terror group.

Embarrassed Twitter bosses blamed the hijack on a DNS attack, where a web address is diverted to another site.

It was fixed a few hours later.

But critics slammed Twitter for lax security.”

What do you think Cornwall?  Were you blocked out of your Twitter account?  Btw, you can catch up with us on twitter under cwfreenews.

I heard about this just today. It’s scary, but in a way funny.

“Hezbollah is victorious” made me laugh a little.

P.S.
Hezbollah isn’t exactly a political group…they’re a bit more than that.
