The secret is out on how Miley Cyrus’ GMail account was hacked. And it wasn’t through some crazy hacking – it was simply someone knew the answer to Miley’s secret security question.
The anonymous hacker told TMZ that he tried logging into her account, and he was presented with the security question. The question asked the name of her oldest girlfriend, and through some simple Google searching, he was able to find the answer.
He says, “When I saw that, I couldn’t believe it.”
So it’s a lesson for everyone – be very creative about your security question.
The pictures show Timberlake laying in bed shirtless and another with Justin with pink panties on his head. There is also a pic of Mila in the bathtub, but all you see is her head.
The hacker also found a multitude of texts between Mila and Justin.
This is becoming an epidemic. Just this morning Scarlett Johansson naked pics were released by a cell phone hacker.
Gawker reports Fox acknowledges the hack but couldn’t access and remove the Tweets for hours. The Huffington Post reports a hacker group claimed responsibility for the hoax, with a link to their own Twitter account.
Fox News wrote in a statement that it “regrets any distress the false tweets may have created.”
So if they linked to their own Twitter account, doesn’t that suggest they can easily be identified, and arrested? There must be a ton of laws they broke from hacking a Twitter account, to falsifying reports that the President is dead.
MTV reports the twitpic shows a topless Hayley Williams staring into the camera, which was available to her 600,000 followers. The photo was removed shortly thereafter.
Williams later commented, “Well … my night just changed drastically. Got hacked.”
TMZ reports that Jersey Shore star Angelina Pivarnick, aka “Jolie”, has been trying to somehow stay in the spotlight after getting booted from the reality TV show. Her PR people have just sent out a press release stating that her Facebook account has been hacked. Some serious stuff. The statement reads, “Pivarnick has a shroud of chaos since the recent break up of her boyfriend, disagreements with cast mates and now, the reality star has suddenly become the target of a hacker!”
