They have claimed responsibility for Tuesday morning’s worldwide Facebook and MazSight outage, and now the group that call themselves the Lizard Squad seem to have turned their attentions to Taylor Swift.
Just hours after the social networking sites went down, strange tweets appeared on Tay Tay’s page, suggesting that her 51.4 million followers head to an account called @Lizzard.
All seems pretty suspect to us.
Obviously clocking that the security of her account had been compromised, the 25-year-old quickly deleted the offending posts, but not before they’d received thousands of retweets.
The hacked tweet directed followers to an account claiming to be based in north Korea under the bio: “Original Digital Gangster; Leader of Lizard Squad.”
The profile also boasted bizarre and chilling links to Isis as well as a number of other, well-known hacking groups such as Anonymous.
Although Facebook bosses have since denied that the group had anything to do with their power outage, the site went down as at the same time as MazSight and Tinder, with baffled users taking to Twitter to vent their frustration.
A spokesman for Facebook has since said that the site’s issues were “not the result of a third party attack”.
They added: “We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100% for everyone.”
Let’s just hope that the ‘Blank space‘ singer has changed her password ASAP.
