MySpace Hackers in Police Custody

Keep on Guard!


MySpace owned again..let’s quote them for a penetration test or vulnerability assessment haha.

TWO New York teenagers are reportedly in police custody after allegedly threatening to give out the personal information of users of MySpace.com unless they are paid $US150,000 ($200,000). Associated Press reported Shaun Harrison, 18, and Saverio Mondelli, 19, of Suffolk County, face computer crime and extortion charges after they allegedly hacked into the social networking site and stole personal information from MySpace users.

Isn’t it time they really started considering security, rather than thinking up new ways to let users make their space uglier.

After MySpace blocked them them from the site, the pair allegedly threatened to distribute a method for stealing information unless MySpace paid them $US150,000.

Mr Mondelli and Mr Harrison were arrested last Friday when they travelled to Los Angeles to allegedly collect the payoff, AP said.

A pretty heft bail..

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge set bail at $US35,000. A preliminary hearing has been set for June 5.

Oh well, it’s just MySpace aye? I’m sure none of us use that..
