Tesla Motors Twitter Hijack / Hack

It was recently discovered that during the hijacking of Tesla’s Twitter account, more may have been compromised than previously thought. It is now thought that the Tesla machine had been accessed in the midst of all these hacking’s and that the Install.pgsql.txt and Install.mysql.txt files were modified. The hacking was thought to have been performed by the Lizard Squad (the team mentioned in previous blogs of mine).

As usual, groups of scripters are always trying to find a way to get attention. There’s a reason they are targeting big name twitter accounts in the tech world and nothing something separate from social media. Or perhaps the reason I hear about social media attacks so often is just because of the fact that it is social media in the first place?
