Emma Stone hacked

Emma Stone , an American actress has revealed that hackers have hijacked her twitter account and posted a series of tweets. Fans of Emma were worried when a tweet was made from her account, an anagram for "Andrew and Shailene sitting in a tree", which appeared to claim her boyfriend Andrew Garfield was cheating on her with their Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-star Shailene Woodley - according to the CASTANET report.

"I have never tweeted, my friend. I've tweeted one time to Seth MacFarlane. I said, 'Me too, oh boy' In an interview for On Air With Ryan Seacrest, she explained.

She is not able to access her account because the hackers changed her email id and password, but since the incident, she and her team are trying to delete her twitter account.

Emma also revealed it was only when the tweet about Shailene and Andrew made headlines that she found out she had been hacked.

"That was the first one I heard. And then I heard there was a rich history of other things I've tweeted and deleted, and I didn't know about any of this happening because I don't go on Twitter." Emma said.

To Clear some doubts about the Forum --- Please read this

The Cyberinfocts Ethcial Hackers Forum invitation  was sent out to give everyone the opportunity to be part of the growth. Just a chance to learn new things and protect yourself from hack attacks. Culture of ethical  hackers is  give back to the  community ... Johnny Long, Mark Zuckerberg and many more good ones. I believe this is my little contribution to my community, may not create a platform large as facebook, may not be able to feed thousands of poor African children a day. But helping those stocked in some issues with their PC , Networks, Gadgets, Database and provide adequate solutions that is my contribution to my community.

There have been positive response from those that attended the previous meet. My goal is to enhance our approach to information security, most people are victim of hack attacks cause of ignorance. When bad guys are out there sleepless nights learning new tricks on exploiting victims and you are out there as a certified Information Security Professional after u bag the certificate  doing nothing remember the exploit of today may not likely work tomorrow. Hackers are coming out with new tools exploit and how can you protect your company infrastructure from latest hack attacks. Three hours a month is not too much in just a month, where latest tools, updates will be shared.... In the community everyone is a learner.... Note that an hacker doesn't have to come to Nigeria before he can hack, the latest hack attack is to Nigerian Government website, those people  i doubt if they ever visited Nigeria before but they performed their exploit.

The forum is not to promote crime, but to enhance security, well the community is like the mother community NULL india a community of information Security professionals where information Security professional meet to discuss security as a whole.

Someone ask, why do we have to come with our laptop?
Is not compulsory to come with the laptop, will be more fun and interactive when you come with your devices.

Well the group is not only for IT security professionals cause what are we actually securing was developed by developers, network are managed by network admins, application Developers Network admins are also welcome , web admins, IT auditors, Forensics Investigators, Malware analysts, so also physical security professionals.

Note: Not all things are taught in class, a platform like this is another way to learn, i learnt new things from the last Forum. Am looking forward to the next one. Hope to see you all there.
