‘Iranian Cyber Army’ hacks Twitter


December 18, 2009/6.17

Above The Iranian Cyber Army’s page, which has replaced the Twitter one at this time.

For those trying to get on to the Twitter website presently, one need not bother: a group calling itself the Iranian Cyber Army claims to have hacked the site.
   Users on the micro-blogging service were presented with a new home page, apparently protesting the United States. It appears to be a DNS attack, redirecting users to the new page.
   The new home page emerged at 6 a.m. GMT today.
   In the poorly translated English (full text noted here), there is an odd reference to an embargo list, and that the hackers were against the Iranian people being stimulated. The hackers gave the address of [email protected].
   This publication will hold back on Tweeting till the hacking problem is resolved.
   It marks an already difficult week on Twitter. Twitter application Twitterfeed had a data migration, leaving many users with a reduced service.

Update: Within an hour, Twitter restored its service.

  6. Mad Mac: interesting, I missed that. I wonder what that meant—I guess the hackers must have directed things to their own site. I’m glad to see it’s back right now.
