CBS Twitter Feeds Compromised and Suspended

A Pro-Assad organization of hackers has shown its true colors by hacking two CBS Twitter feeds. The personnel at Twitter spoke of how they were sorry for the inconvenience this delay in normal operations may have caused users. The takeover has left some tweets with controversial contents. Furthermore, tweets with a decidedly Anti-Semitic tone are being posted by this fanatical group all set to sabotage the United States.

Some of the messages that came out in public view had negative and criminal minds behind them. “The US government is hiding the real culprit of the Boston bombing” was one such extremely disturbing tweet. Then there was the paranoid type that went “Obama wants to destroy the Syrian and American people.”  These bogus tweets were broke down later. The land to which this group of hackers belongs is Syria. A bloody civil war has been going on there since the past three years. Over 70,000 people have lost their lives and a million have become refugees.
 
The hijacked accounts have tall tales that remind one of conspiracy theories. It became quite apparent after a while that the sites for “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours” on Twitter were showing some odd messages that didn’t tally with the facts. The CBS Twitter feed of "60minutes" has undergone suspension since it was hacked. And it was displaying the fake and obviously obnoxious tweets.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
