Twitter Hackers Warn: “Do Not Try To Stimulation Iranian Peoples”



Could this be the scariest tweet ever?

Twitter’s blog post explanation is somewhat vague and benign sounding:

Twitter’s DNS records were temporarily compromised tonight but have now been fixed. As some noticed, Twitter.com was redirected for a while but API and platform applications were working.

Boy, that’s an understatement! Twitter was hacked by a group claiming to be the "Iranian Cyber Army." TechCrunch has the screenshot and additional details:

Iranian Cyber Army

THIS SITE HAS BEEN HACKED BY IRANIAN CYBER ARMY

iRANiAN.CYBER.ARMY@GMAIL.COM

U.S.A. Think They Controlling And Managing Internet By Their Access, But THey Don’t, We Control And Manage Internet By Our Power, So Do Not Try To Stimulation Iranian Peoples To….

NOW WHICH COUNTRY IN EMBARGO LIST? IRAN? USA?
WE PUSH THEM IN EMBARGO LIST ;)
Take Care.

Yowsers!

Clearly, this is some kind of vengeance for Twitter’s active involvement in the recent Iranian elections fiasco–something our own government encouraged.

I don’t know what’s the greater threat here. That something that we rely on so much can be hacked relatively easy, or that I millions of people were unable to tweet "Going to bed, night all."

Scary stuff! ;-)

    I have to say, though, the “Take care” at the end of the hackers’ message was a nice touch. :) Kinda like when we southerners say “Bless his heart” after talking trash about someone.

    Seriously, though, the scope of this level of hacking is definitely concerning.

    lol. But, this is really a matter of concern. If this was done once, then it can be done again. The question then that we need to ask is, do we have to control what’s being said in our tweets now because of this?

    Wow. You would think with the authority they have online that they would have a team to be watching for hackers. It’s kind of funny though.
