A bunch of Iranian wacko extremists who butcher the English language “take control” of Twitter.

Unless you live at 120 Rock Ln., you’ve no doubt heard about Twitter’s “hijack” at least twice this morning. Late last night a group claiming to be the “Iranian Cyber Army” exploited a hole in security around Twitter’s DNS records which led to the events that unfolded. The events of course weren’t anything too sinister — a simple picture and some propaganda jargon saying we’re the best you’re not. Really deep stuff. I should be more worried but I find myself more cynical than ever, though nothing worth getting bent out of shape over.

What this little attack does highlight is that Twitter needs to get a better grip on their stuff. I shouldn’t write them off too quickly as such a large American staple of mass communication is an obvious target for those looking to spread a message.

The Message:

hijack

The translated message:

Iranian Cyber Army
THIS SITE HAS BEEN HACKED BY IRANIAN CYBER ARMY

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.

**Note to extremist groups who think they’re tech savvy: If you’re going to “take over” jack around with some DNS records, please at least learn the fuckin’ language of the people you’re trying to mock. You’re senseless ramblings only make you look stupid.
