MySpace celebrity hacker downs hacking forum

Friendly fire

Security for virtualized datacentres

A wannabe hacker succeeded only in getting a forum for a group he wanted to join taken down after hacking celebrity MySpace profiles.

Tesla defaced the MySpace profiles of singers Tila Tequila and Justin Timberlake as well as actress Hilary Duff to post greetings to the Kryogenics crew. Aside from the greeting nothing malicious was posted on the pages.

Nonetheless the hack was incentive enough for the powers that be to get the Kryogeniks.org website pulled. As internet security firm FaceTime notes this is hardly a good tactic for currying favour.

More on how not to make friends and influence people on a post in FaceTime's blog here. ®
