NBC Sites Hacked
Hacked – NBC Sites Hacked
Several NBC websites were hacked by an anonymous hacker. He used black images with stars in the background and they bore the words, “Hacked by Pyknic”
According to popular blog, Marshable, “The banner also includes scrolling text reading, “Remember, remember the fifth of November.” It goes on to say, “The gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.”
No one has yet taken credit for the NBC hack, but at least as of late majority of the formerly hacked pages have been corrected and reverted back to normal. The hacker though claimed that he had leaked out user profiles and passwords of the site, though NBC is yet to clarify on this.
The same hacker went ahead and hacked into Lady Gaga’s fan site, GagaDaily. There is no clear motive as to why all these websites where hacked.
Many such hackers especially from the group “Anonymous” are common lately, this shows the urgent need for stronger web and computer protection and the embrace of IPV6. Anonymous is a group of scattered hackers all over the world, some directly linked and others self acclaimed to the group that claim they hack to reduce the injustices on the less vocal and the exploiters. Though some of them once in a while stray off the rails and go astray.
Stay with us to keep track on the NBC hack update.
