A Politically Tight Situation? Blame a HACKER!

Use Netsparker


It has happened quite a few times lately, politically tight situations, mistakes, data or information leaks and whoops damn…er…let’s blame it on hackers!

Case 1:

California Highway Patrol officials have opened a criminal investigation into “multiple” breaches and illegal downloads by outside hackers into the computers of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office, after an embarrassing private taped conversation was leaked last week to the Los Angeles Times, administration officials told The Chronicle.

“There is an investigation conducted by the California Highway Patrol on how the tape obtained by the L.A. Times was acquired,” said a senior official who spoke on condition of anonymity. “This is a criminal matter that has been turned over to the CHP.”

Case 2:

The man responsible for Joe Lieberman’s campaign Web site said Tuesday that Joe2006.com was overwhelmed by traffic generated by hackers early Tuesday morning, forcing him to take the site off-line.

Tuesday’s attack was the third in the past month, said Dan Geary, who runs Lieberman’s site. But the earlier two attacks involved defacements & the hacker altered content on Lieberman’s home page. This time, attackers toppled the Lieberman site with requests, probably by directing an army of hacked computers at the site.
