Today CBC News reported that the US Secret Service will investigate the hijacking of the FOX News Politics twitter account.
The U.S. Secret Service will investigate the hijacking of a Fox News Twitter account by hackers who posted false reports that U.S. President Barack Obama was assassinated.
Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie confirmed the investigation to CBC News on Monday.
Six tweets from FoxNewsPolitics, which has more than 34,100 followers, alleged the president was shot and killed at a restaurant while campaigning in Iowa. They were posted starting at about 2 a.m. ET on Monday, Independence Day.
Fox News announced on its website later in the morning that it had alerted the Secret Service, which is responsible for protecting the president, about the incident.
On its website Monday morning, FoxNews.com said, “Hackers sent out several malicious and false tweets claiming that President Obama had been assassinated.
“Those reports are incorrect, of course, and the president is spending the July 4 holiday with his family.”
Fox News, which is based in New York City, later added it had alerted the Secret Service. Jeff Misenti, vice-president and general manager of Fox News Digital, was quoted as saying the website was requesting a detailed investigation by Twitter to figure out how the attack occurred and how to “prevent future unauthorized access into FoxNews.com accounts.”
Good luck Script Kiddies.
It looks like you’re busted.
