Hacked adult webcam accounts dating site and chat online
According to Satnam Narang, Symantec’s senior security manager, this is indeed a preposterous way to popularize particular dating or pornographic sites.
Moreover, these pornbots are also tweeting links to adult dating sites.As per Narang’s analysis, hackers managed to break into such a vast number of accounts due to “a combination of weak and reused passwords”.Agan Uzunovic Agan Uzunovic is a Bosnian journalist who is working for the country's largest newspaper. Agan reports and writes for Hack Read on IT security related topics.Each of these tweets includes sexually suggestive photos and shortened links using either Bitly or Google’s URL shortener, ”“Being able to bust into that account, and use that account to post a tweet will make it more likely that people will click on their links compared to someone who has say, 100 followers or 20 followers” states Narang.
However, it has been identified that a majority of the hacked account were quite old and some were created in 2007 while some were merely dormant as there wasn’t a single tweet posted from that account.
After the hack, hackers modified the profile pictures, bios and full names of the users in order to popularize adult websites and replaced them with pictures of women in “a suggestive pose or wearing lingerie/swimwear.” The names also have been altered and substituted with other real names taken from a variety of forums.
