The Hacking Streak Continues, Android Forums Hacked!

After LinkedIn and Yahoo Inc, an Android forum known as Android Forums has been breached by hackers. The hacking attack probably led to off the record user information including log in credentials getting compromised. The news was made public by Phandroid.com, operator of the forums. The forum members are been advised to change their log in details. This forum has over a million active users…

Yahoo Gets Hacked by D33D Company

Recently the Yahoo servers were hacked and now Yahoo officially confirmed that roughly over 400,000 credentials along with passwords belonging to Yahoo and other companies were stolen.

A hacking group named “The D33D Company” posted something like 453,492 accounts that belonged to not only Yahoo but also Gmail, AOL, Hotmail, Live.com, MSN, Comcast, Verizon and SBC Global users.

Anonymous Strikes Man Tech International!

Anonymous will never give the fight up. This time, their victim is the unfortunate cyber security contractor Man Tech International. The recent attack was aimed to embarrass the FBI. The rising slope of Anonymous’ violence against the FBI shows no negative deviation, regardless of the increasing number of global hacker arrests.

The group claimed that they have breached into a database of a big U.S. cyber security contractor linked to the FBI. On Friday morning, Anonymous kept their word by leaking a heap of classified documents obtained from the security contractor Man Tech International.

PayPal Gives 1,000 Anonymous IPs To FBI

PayPal was attacked last year by an Anonymous Group of hackers after PayPal froze the account of Wikileaks. After such long period, PayPal has finally decided to take action against the hacking attempt.

The hackers left behind sufficient data to be traced. PayPal has given FBI a list of 1,000 IP addresses. PayPal has declared that these IP addresses were linked to the hacking which occurred last year.

Nobody knows how useful the IP addresses, for tracking the hackers might be. As the attack was Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)

LulzSec Frames Innocent Man As Leader Of Anon

There is yet another twist in the apprehended member of LulzSec story. The ‘real’ hacker actually managed to dupe police to take a wrong guy into custody.

The actual hacker turned out to as sharp as you would expect a hacker from LulzSec to be. The evidence too indicates that the LulzSec hacker tricked the police to grab an innocent guy who had nothing to do with hacking.

LulzSec And Anonymous Nominated For Pwnie Awards 2011

Finally, the time has come to reward the infamous hacking organizations. Will it be LulzSec or Anonymous? Both the groups have been nominated for Pwnie Awards 2011. Thus far, they are going nose to nose in the category for the most destructive, extensively publicized or entertaining hack of the year. The fifth Pwnies award ceremony will be taking place next week- it is just like the Oscars for the cyber community.

In the world of hacking, ‘pwn’ stands for control, as in controlling another person’s computer or an entire server. Pwnies is pronounced just like ponies, which is exactly the reason why the winners get a gold-painted Little Pony statue.

Anonymous Crosshairs NATO!

It’s North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) this time that the Online ‘Hacktivist’ gathering, Anonymous, targeted and breached their database successfully, claiming a Gigabit of data.

Anon admitted that on Twitter, saying that they gained a huge amount of restricted data and might make it public in few days.

LulzSec Posts Fake Article Claiming Murdoch’s Death

I guess LulzSec never really resigned, and the whole thing was just a way to engage in a cooldown period and get the FBI off their backs (at least a little bit). Then again, members of LulzSec are known to go rogue and just do their own thing.

Rather than simply taking down a website, they decided to post a fake Times newspaper page that masqueraded as the Sun. Following the attack, the hackers tweeted “We have joy we have fun we will mess up Murdoch’s Sun: http://t.co/JArvwg1 | Hi Rupert! Have fun tomorrow at the Parliament! #AntiSec”

Anonymous To Create Its Own Social Networking Site

Anonymous, the iniquitous group is the headline once again after Google+ banned a handful of Anonymous’ users (the exact figure of shut down accounts is unknown though).

The futuristic group equated Google’s topical action against them to the tittle-tattles of activists being banned from various social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and administration blocking websites using internet expurgation tools.

Zuckerberg Drops Off The No. 1 Spot On Google+

I suppose Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t too fond of all the publicity that was being generated from his Google+ profile as he recently changed his privacy settings to stop showing his friends and followers.

Zuckerberg, who previously held the top spot on Google+ quickly disappeared from peoples list, leaving many to find the humor in his respect of his own privacy, while Facebook remains a very public and open social network.
