The programmers gladly announce themselves on Twitter. The self-depicted white cap security aggregate OurMine is asserting obligation regarding assuming control over the confirmed records of Marvel, The Avengers, Ant-Man, Captain America, Tony Stark and an unconfirmed record for the Incredible Hulk. For every situation, they posted no less than one message portraying the hack as a security test, finish with an email deliver for Marvel to contact “to help you with your security.”
Hacking bunches that portray themselves as “white cap” see themselves as the great folks who call attention to security imperfections without exploiting them. Wonder didn’t state regardless of whether they’d contacted OurMine, however a representative let me know, “We’re examining and making prompt move to cure the circumstance.”
OurMine alarmed me to the hack as it happened, and let me know they could pull it off by hacking specifically into the Marvel Twitter channel. From that point, the records of the other Marvel properties required in the hack were evidently connected by means of Tweetdeck, permitting OurMine get to.
OurMine has a long reputation of prominent assaults, including a takeover of the Netflix US account only toward the beginning of today. Past targets have included Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. I inquired as to whether they had some other hacks got ready for now. They let me know that they weren’t certain, “however 70% we have a hack tomorrow.”
