    U.S. military Twitter feed hacked, apparently by IS sympathizers.....




    The Twitter feed for the U.S. military command that oversees operations in the Middle East was hacked on Monday by people claiming sympathy to the Islamic State militant group being targeted in American bombing raids.

    U.S. officials said that the U.S. Central Command Twitter account and its YouTube account were suspended after being compromised. Two U.S. defense officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the hacking was an embarrassment but did not appear to be a security threat.

    The White House said it was monitoring the extent of the hacking .....snip~

    What I find far more interesting is that they've then go to centcom and post it. Why not use their own accounts to post it? It's not as if centcom would have had that many twitter followings anyways. Why post it on an account with such few followers? Why not go after the accounts of people with tens of millions of followers? Seems like they shot their load and their best shot was a bunch of information that a script kiddy could access..

    Yep, that's their Best and the military scenarios are not real. Also they are saying ISIS sympathizers not the real terrorists themselves. Like I said.....the concern would be the addresses an phone numbers they got.



    Slides posted by the unknown hackers that purported to show plans involving China and North Korea are not military and some of them were produced by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the officials said. "This is clearly embarrassing, but not a security threat,".....snip~
