Twitter Hacked, Defaced By “Iranian Cyber Army”

Post by RK1 Apocalypse on Fri Dec 18, 2009 4:11 am

The message reads:

Iranian Cyber Army

THIS SITE HAS BEEN HACKED BY IRANIAN CYBER ARMY

iRANiAN.CYBER.ARMY@GMAIL. COM

U.S.A. Think They Controlling And Managing Internet By Their Access, But THey Don’t, We Control And Manage Internet By Our Power, So Do Not Try To Stimulation Iranian Peoples To….

NOW WHICH COUNTRY IN EMBARGO LIST? IRAN? USA?
WE PUSH THEM IN EMBARGO LIST
Take Care.

Update: – We have just found out that the same defacement is appearing at at least one other site, mawjcamp.org. We are not able to see what was at this domain before, but it is now displaying the same defacement that Twitter was only a few minutes ago.

Twitter does not have the best record with security issues. We have previously covered a number of incidents, and as recently as two months ago their web servers were misconfigured to reveal detailed internal network information. We also previously wrote about their admin interface having a password of ‘password’ on one account, and the well-known Twitter doc incident. It was hoped that with the hiring of a new COO, **** Costolo, as well as a number of other high-level engineers, including security experts, that Twitter had grown out of the phase of being vulnerable to security incidents on such a large scale.

We do not know a lot about the group claiming responsibility for the attack as we haven’t heard their name before and they do not show up in any defacement mirrors or security sites. Similar Iranian groups were active during the election campaign in that country. We have emailed the group (they were kind enough to leave an address on the defacement) for a comment (also added them on Gchat – worth a shot).

Update 2.: Twitter.com is down, status.twitter.com is down (not useful, perhaps they should host it at blogger). Some tweets are getting through at the moment because parts of the API are up. Search also seems to be working. The Firehose is up – Tweets are coming in from FriendFeed (all those tweets about ‘is twitter down’ are from third-party sites)

Update 3.: It is suggested that if you use the same password on your Twitter account with other accounts, now would be a good time to change your password on those other accounts.

Update 4.: There is a history between Iran and Twitter. It was well noted and covered in the media that Twitter was used as a tool during the Iranian election protests. The US government actually intervened to assure that Twitter was available to the protestors in Tehran and around the country. This attack may be an act of reprisal from groups who were not happy with the role that Twitter played during the protests

Update 5.: There is speculation at the moment that this may be a DNS redirect, which means that the Twitter.com domain has been redirected to the defacement page. This doesn’t explain why some sub-domains are down, while others are currently still alive (such as search)

I think I ran into these cats the other day at McDonalds. They were out in the play area knocking little kids down and laughing. They just needed a good whipping to get them back in line.

Probably a bunch of self serving thumb suckers. You or I could have pulled of a hack on Twitter. Then to post such outlandish messages saying that they control the Ineternet? Please you "hacked" twitter. Hack something of more substance before you talk about controlling the internet.

I haven't seen where they confirmed that the same folks hacked the drones though. Drones were hacked using some low tech stuff but I don't think it was the same group. Then again I'm not there or involved so I don't really know.

Not impossible. UAVs can be hacked into, and it can be very dangerous if they hack into a Predator Drone. I'm sure you've heard of a predator drone... you've played Modern Warfare 2, right?

The program they use to hack, I believe, is called SkyGrabber. There's no evidence that they can take over the aircraft. They just intercept the aircraft's video feed, thereby reducing the tactical advantage of a quiet, unmanned aircraft. Thumbs up

It is quite possible for the "hacker" to take control of the UAV. It is just a matter if they have a good enough uplink to the UAV. You see, and I hope you already know this, a UAV is controlled by a Remote Linking Device. In this case, a Secured Mobile Device (SMD) (Laptop). If the connection between the SMD and UAV are interrupted by a outside source then the outside source can take control of the UAV. And if they took control of a MQ-1 Predator Drone, then you better run to a bunker. But the chances of all this happening is slim to none.

No, really? /sarcasm. It's not just a matter of having a "good enough uplink." It's a matter of having the actual program and equipment to take control of the UAV. What they are doing is stealing the video feed. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/12/17/insurgents-hack-drones/
