Twitter Hacked ALL THE CURRENT INFO+UPDATES

Not too long ago Twitter was apparently hacked. The site apparently showed the following message

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 ranian Peoples To….

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

These hackers also reportedly did the same to http://www.mowjcamp.org/, I don't know what was on the mowjcamp site before this incident however it was reported to have the same message.

Personally for Hackers you would think if they are going to try to make a statement, that they would at-least make a clear understandable one. Basically it appears they have stated that they think they control the internet, and that America doesn't, and they say they put us in the embargo list. Message to the hackers: it's called Google Translate, I talked about it in my last post, NOW USE IT OR YOU LOOK LIKE RETARDS.


Twitter Users should change their passwords because it is unknown but the hackers could potentially gotten ahold of your passwords

Some Believe it was simply a DNS redirect.

THIS POST WILL BE EDITED AS NEWS COMES IN!

Updates:

  • The Tech Crunch team is looking to contact them, through their email address conveniently left on the site.
  • Twitter isn't acknowledging Iranian Cyber Army in their posts about the outage.
  • Twitter’s Platform Lead engineer Alex Payne has a funnier update on thecurrent status
  • Google was showing the below briefly when doing a search for Twitter. The translation from Farsi/Persian reads:

    “In the name of God, As an Iranian this is a reaction to Twitter’s interference sly which was U.S. authorities ordered in the internal affairs of my country…”

  • Post by Amir on Tech Crunch- December 17th, 2009 at 11:02 pm PST

    It is most likely done by “Cyber Army” an organization led by Sepah (Revolutionary Guard) to threaten and put pressure on the opposition.

    They have also defaced Mowjcap.com a website for the opposition.

  • Theories Rise about who may have done it(none of these are known as fact):
    -Iranian Government - since Twitter was used alot in the political campaigns for that country and also helped in the protests.(unlikely I think)

    -anyone wanting to give Iranians bad reputation by attacking a visible but insignificant target and hanging up big posters saying “we are iranians. ”

    Iran doesnt need to disable twitter globally, it’s enough to block twitter to within Iran, like the chinese firewall.

    -Ali On TechCrunch said"We definitely heard some news after the elections that the Iranian government had started a group called Cyber Army to help with Collecting names of protesters and Taking down opposition websites. Numerous opposition websites have been taken down since the elections, including the most recent mowjcamp.com which is Mousavi’s main communication to the opposition."
