New Hacking Group Attacks Amy Winehouse's Website
Amy Winehouse's website was defaced by a new hacking group.
A new hacking group has announced itself by defacing the website of sobriety-challenged musician Amy Winehouse.
Yesterday, the singer's website, amywinehouse.com was hijacked by a group calling itself Swagger Security.
The hackers took control of Winehouse's website and put up a banner reading: "Winehouse = No Swag | AntiSec = No Swag."
("AntiSec " refers to the anti-government campaign that's spurred recent high-profile hacks, including this week's leak of confidential data from the Arizona Border Police.)
The banner contained an expletive-filled rant explaining that Swagger Security is not affiliated with the Anonymous hackers and their AntiSec campaign.
Starting by targeting Winehouse Swagger Security called her a " racist crackhead devil bit**" on its @SwagSec Twitter page, the group said its goal is to "take back the Internet from the white devil."
Kids' Safety Site Defaced with Child Porn Links The banner used to deface the site also included a picture of rapper Lil' B, and a promise that if he mentions Swagger Security in a new song, the group will give the rapper all "our bit****, promise."
Winehouse's website is redirecting traffic to her Facebook page.
It's possible this isn't the last time we'll hear from Swagger Security: In its message on Winehouse's site, the group claims to have stolen data from Justin Bieber and personal information on a "hundred thousand hundred trillion Lady Gaga" users.
