A recently created Twitter account Fredrick Reinfeldt just an hour before has spread the false news yesterday about the Mikhail Gorbachev death.

On visiting this twitter account many users began to repeat the news of Former Soviet Union president death

Fredrick Reinfeldt account also posted that the published news is belong to the Prime Minister of Sweden.

As the false news in twitter of this month about the death of Margaret Thatcher, the news of Gorbachev death is also proved to be one of the entirely idiotic fake news.

Twitter once again proves that it is the best social media in spreading false news fast.

Counterfeit news- Margaret Thatcher was dead

 


Forged news: Carla Bruni publicized in her twitter account that Margaret Thatcher dead. This news stretched like wildfire all over the world. This news which is announced in twitter is utterly false news. Yes, the former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is still alive.

The followers of twitter who has the fake account were told that the British ambassador informed the French presidency about the death of the Margaret Thatcher.

In the case British prime minister truly dead, the spam news will be first announce by British not from French.

Sadly, @Lesnews incorrectly statement the death of former British prime minister yesterday evening that causes rumors of her death to clean across the overhaul, but oddly no corroboration from some other news exits.

Media organization is stressed to manage in a world where news shatters in a moment, and stretched all over the world by means of Twitter

Johnny Depp has NOT died in a car crash, but hackers utilize rumours

Hollywood film actor Johnny Depp, well-known for his role in Edward Scissor hands, Sleepy Hollow and Pirates of the Caribbean, becomes the unsuspecting star of an internet hoax which increase extensively this weekend.

 

 

Blameless internet user were fooled by the hoax, dispersal messages to their online friends that the popular film star, who lives in France with his partner Vanessa Paradis, had come to a sad end at the side of a road in Bordeaux. The bogus information claim that the 46-year-old actor had die in a drunken car crash, often connecting to a webpage which apparently restricted a CNN news report, including a photograph of the wreckage.

 

Though, the webpage (despite appearance to the casual browser) wasn’t in fact on CNN’s website at all.

Fraction of the report reads:

 

 

Johnny Depp’s car was found alongside a road exterior Bordeaux, France, with the protector rail entrenched deep in the car.

A tourist was heavy downward the road when he saw a car wreck alongside the road. He step out and try to see if anybody was in there as his wife dialed the police for help.

To his disappointment, he found the body in the car among liquor bottles.

The police arrived at the scene shortly after and pulled out the body of the former actor, Johnny Depp.

 

Many people forwarded on messages about Depp’s death making “Johnny Depp RIP” a trending topic on Twitter, which helped to fuel the rumour and spread it even further and faster. The only problem was, inevitably, that the people hadn’t checked their facts before passing on the news. Johnny Depp, I’m delighted to report, hasn’t died in a car crash. In addition, as you can see in the video below, hackers have taken advantage of the situation – spreading malware on sites claiming to contain footage of Johnny Depp’s car crash

Barrack Obama dead after hack in twitter

An administrator Twitter account belong to the political squad at Fox News has been compromise and fall into the hands of hackers who have post false stories claiming that Barrack Obama has been assassinated. The messages were posted at approximately 2am local time, and were quickly retweeted across the network.

 

Messages posted to the @FoxNewsPolitics account included:

BREAKING NEWS: President @BarackObama assassinated, 2 gunshot wounds have proved too much. It’s a sad 4th for #America. #obamadead RIP

And

We wish @joebiden the best of luck as our new President of the United States. In such a time of madness, there’s light at the end of tunnel

 

The scoundrel tweet seems to have begun after a message was post on the FoxNewsPolitics account saying “Just regained full right of entry to our Twitter and email. Happy 4th”.

That message imply that whoever hack into the account compromise the email address of the person who administer the FoxNewsPolitics account, giving an unknown third-party the ability to post tweets at will. At the time of writing the false announcement are still present on the FoxNewsPolitics Twitter page – the July 4th Independence Day holiday may mean that no-one at Fox has been able to log into the account to take away the tweets.

 

A Twitter account vocation itself “TheScriptKiddie” has claim blame for the attack, but has since been balanced.

The Fox media territory appears to have haggard a lot of fire from hackers in new months. In May, hackers stole details of employee’s usernames and passwords and deface Twitter and LinkedIn pages.

 

Beforehand, the personal information of more than 250,000 people was stolen from Fox’s The X Factor show. Though some may be amused by the newest hack, users can clearly be place at risk if an account is browbeaten by an important person with malicious intentions (they could link to a website containing malware, as we recently saw with the recent breach of Simon Pegg’s account for example).

 

The workers of Fox accountable for the management of the company’s social media financial records might be wise to refresh their information of password security and check that their computers have not been compromised with spyware.

According to AllHipHop.com, some of the verbal communication used was extremely unpleasant.

 

 

Mind you, some fan of music like that is almost certainly used to repugnant language.

Lil Wayne has at the present shut down his Twitter account, which went by the name @liltunechi. To be truthful, he hasn’t had the most excellent of times on Twitter – his sheet was before hacked late last year, with fake news being posted about future performance.

 

Clearly if he can’t keep manage of his Twitter account; it’s improved that it be disabling.

If nil else, this case prove that just since a Twitter account is “verified” it doesn’t signify that it actually is the celebrity (or an authorized representative) who is responsibility the tweeting. Additional celebrity who have had their Twitter accounts hack in the past include Axl Rose, politican Ed Miliband, Britney Spears and plumy-voiced TV property crumpet Kirsty Allsopp.

How Amy Winehouse Site got hacked

A hacking group vocation itself SwagSec has out of order into the official website of songster Amy Winehouse and deface it by posting an expletive-filled message and an image of the rapper Lil’ B.

The hacking gang, which according to its Twitter feed claims to be based in South Africa, describe the troubled singer as a “Racist crack head devil b****” and say it plans to “take back the Internet from the white devil.”

What charmers.

 

At the occasion of writing, Amy Wine house’s administrator website is redirect to her Face book page. Most probably her website administrators are keen to take the site offline until they are sure that it is now correctly tenable. It’s additional bad news for the beehive-wearing Winehouse, who previous this month cancelled future tour date after a devastating reply presentation in Belgrade.

 

 

We contain to be grateful, of route, that the assault appears to have been more akin to mindless graffiti, than an effort to plant malware on a popular singer’s internet site. The merely small solace for Amy Winehouse is that she’s not the first singer to have suffered from website hackers.

 

For example, in 2009, Paul McCartney’s official website had malicious code planted on it by hackers which downloaded code to spy on users as they logged into their online bank financial records. Possibly the most bizarre story of a musician having his website “hacked“, however, is that of Van Morrison.

 

 

 

At the end of 2009, it was widely report that Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison had had a child with American record producer Gigi Lee, after a statement announcing the birth of George Ivan Morrison III was published on the music legend’s website. You would wait for that this wasn’t news welcomed by Van Morrison’s wife Michelle. And the singer quickly claimed that the announcement was bogus and the result of hackers breaking into his website.

It seemed like a tall story at the time to blame the announcement conveniently on hackers, and can be considered even more so if you read this deeper investigation by the Mail. Regardless of Van Morrison’s possibly tangled love life, and Amy Wine house’s battles with addiction, there’s a message for all of us in the latest website hack.

Paris Hilton’s site Compromised

Individuality thieves hacked the website of the Hilton commerce realm heiress, Paris Hilton, and used it to deal out a financial information-stealing Trojan. The guests of the website were provoked with a malware approaching dialog box masked as an inform.

 

Elevated profile websites are forever an aim for identity thieves, because they give a better pool of potential victims. The name and status of celebrities, such as Paris Hilton’s, are also continually being used in spam and phishing campaign. This newest assault was first recognized by Web security company Scan Safe on January 9, but the company’s researcher’s say they are not certain when it actually began. According to them, the cyber-criminal succeeds in embedding a rogue iframe into the website, through which a variant of the Zbot (Info stealer) Trojan was dispersed.

 

 

Zbot is a Trojan intended to steal online banking information that also features a root kit component. The nasty application injects code into several legit windows components, it intercept network traffic and keyboard input, logs clipboard information, redirects traffic, and is also able to download and install extra malware. The false update prompt display to the guests of ParisHilton.com pressed the download of the Trojan, in spite of its being conventional or lost. There is no precise information in reference to how the website was compromised, but Mary Landesman, senior security researcher at Scan Safe, speculate in a phone interview for InformationWeek, that vulnerability in the Joomla content management system might have been the offender.

 

An alike incident has been newly reported on the website of the Major League Baseball (MLB), but unlike that drive-by attack, the Paris Hilton incident did not give users the option to ignore the dialog box. The dialog box had to be clicked in order to continue browsing the website, which practically forced them into downloading a malicious PDF file.

 

The harmful PDF file exploits vulnerability in Adobe Reader that was patched in November, and, when opened, it downloads and installs additional applications. Ms. Landesman said that the malware downloaded in this case was not detected by all anti-virus products.

 

The issue has been corrected on Tuesday, and the website is now clean. However, this is not the first time that Paris has come into contact with hackers. Her T-mobile phone account was compromised in 2008, and private data as well as photos were stolen. In addition, hackers also by-passed the security of her Face book account, and got access to personal pictures.
