What do these goddamn hackers get for hacking?

Abriael1320d ago

Some want visibility, some thrive on trolling, others simply like to show they can. All are scum.

Kayant1320d ago

Yep. I seem to remember don't these guys do some other high-class twitter high jacking in the past? Can't remember what accounts they got.

TomShoe1320d ago

This hacker group sucks. We should force them to go into the sun and exercise!

Eonjay1320d ago

Compared to the DDOS attacks this really seems very haremless. As long as they don't interfere with people being able to play their games.

amiga-man1320d ago

Thats impossible according to fanboys there is no power in the world capable of hacking theirs systems.

All systems can be hacked it's just a shame these people haven't got something more constructive to do with their lives.

thekhurg1320d ago

Hacks like this are funny. The ones that shut down servers and services to gamers aren't.

Troll MS/Sony twitter/instagram? Funny.
Shut down Xbox Live or PSN? Eat shit.

@amigaman Microsoft doesn't own twitter or have any sort of special protection on their twitters.

ThatCanadianGuy5141320d ago

They get dualshockers to tell everyone about them.

Publicity for the hackers

low tier game journalism for dualshockers

it's a win-win

Hicken1320d ago

Cuz wccftech.com and gamepur.com are just dualshockers.com...

TAURUS-5551319d ago

Microsoft has regained control again and removed the tweets made by the hackers. Ah well, it got these guys their two minutes of fame.

Or not.....

Edit: Lol, seems like the hackers have control to one of the accounts while someone other keeps removing their tweets :p.

shivvy241320d ago

If only their skills went into use to prevent hacking :/

ginsunuva1320d ago (Edited 1320d ago )

There was no skill involved.

Someone guessed their passworld was Microsoft3 after finding out the previous one was Microsoft2.

If that's skill, then I'm doing pretty well in life..

LogicStomper1319d ago

Dammn. I wonder what their next password will be...

shadowT1320d ago

They are still posting Tweets and MS is deleting again..
