Comcast gets H4x3d

Comcast might want to rethink who they are messing with as their DNS records get hijacked leaving people without webmail access. While this attack is very “script kiddy”-esk and fairly harmless it’s just the first of many attacks that may be planned for Comcast.

Comcast should really be worried about messing with the technology they think they own… The internet does not belong to anyone, nor will it be controlled by anyone! Beware Comcast, you are treading on thin ice… Quoted from my own article here

This is not the first time that an organization opposed to user rights has been attacked. The RIAA’s site has been hacked many times over the years. Let that be a lesson do fuck with technology! H4x 7h3 P14n37!

LifeLock’s Spokesperson ID stolen

I’m sure you have seen the commercials on TV for LifeLock and the spokesperson Todd Davis challenging “hackers” to steal his identity, well it may seem as though someone has.

“It seems as though LifeLock isn’t as secure as Todd Davis makes it out. According to a LifeLock spokesman, his identity has been stolen. For two years, Davis has been daring hackers to steal his ID. Looks like he got what he wanted. CNN reports: ‘Now, LifeLock customers in Maryland, New Jersey and West Virginia are suing Davis, claiming his service didn’t work as promised and he knew it wouldn’t, because the service had failed even him.'”
