Anonymous Gets a Taste of Its Own Medicine and Gets Hacked

By Sam Gibbs on at

Probably while they're all sleeping, the closest thing the Anonymous collective has to an official Twitter account got hacked. @YourAnonNews is currently spouting lots of crap about "Jimmies" and "Rustling". It seems the hacker group known as the Rustle League hacked Anonymous. How does it feel to have the boot on the other foot, eh, Anonymous?

While not quite as amusing as recent hacks and messages from the Syrian Electronic Army, it seems Rustle League has some beef with Israel. An offensive little lot.

Anyway, take a peek while it's hot. Something tells me Anonymous won't be best pleased about this. Maybe it should get on and enable Twitter's new two-factor authentication? Seems a no-brainer to me. Apparently it's not the first time they've been violated by Rustle League either. [Twitter]
