MySpace in the hackers firing line
March 19, 2007
Two hackers who are known as Mondo Armando and Müstaschio, say they are going to start a ploy during April to expose security holes, one a day, in MySpace.
“We could have just as easily gone after Google or Yahoo or MSN or IDG or whatever. MySpace is just more fun, and is becoming notoriously obnoxious about responding to security issues,” Mondo Armando is supposed to have said.
These hack campaigns are a mix of self-promotion for the hackers and also high profile ways to try to force well known sites into improving security.
