Twitter Hacked By ‘Iranian Cyber Army’

December 19, 2009

Global (ChattahBox) – Twitter users found themselves unable to log in Friday night after a group of hackers calling themselves the ‘Iranian Cyber Army’ changed the settings of Twitter’s DNS to redirect to another page.

In what is possible one of the more impressive (and pointless) hacks of the year, the self-proclaimed Iranian Cyber Army redirected users to a page that spoke of their country’s apparent ‘supremacy’ in the online world:

“This site has been hacked by the Iranian Cyber Army.

“The USA thinks they control and manage internet access, but they don’t. We control and manage the internet with our power, so do not try to the incite Iranian people.”

It was a rather weak message, in and of itself, and an almost laughable act of supposed sabotage.

However, the hack itself was fairly inspired.

Not many would be able to track down and access the administrative sign in information for a supersite like Twitter, and then happily change the domain name settings without tipping off alarm bells immediately. The site was down for several hours on a global scale.

While I don’t support or condone the actions of the Iranian Cyber Army, or any hackers, I am reluctantly impressed by what was quite a feat.

Even if the reasons behind seemed like a petulant child vying for attention.
