Gizmodo Twitter Account Hijacked by Foul-Mouthed Hackers

The technology site Gizmodo’s Twitter account was taken over on Friday evening for a brief period from approximately 5:15 to 5:30 PT. The hijackers appear to be part of a hacking group named “Clan Vv3,” and used the account — which has nearly a half million followers — to post racist and offensive messages. The attackers seem to have gained access after compromising former employee Mat Honan’s e-mail and Twitter account. We’ve reached out to Gawker Media, which owns Gizmodo, for comment.
