The New York Times reports that Twitter was the target of a cyber attack that disrupted the microblogging service for many users. Twitter founder Biz Stone says hackers broke into the company's domain name servers and redirected requests to non-Twitter servers. Stone says the matter has been fixed.
Mashable says a group claiming to be the "Iranian Cyber Army" hijacked Twitter and stuck its own text, logos and images on the site. BBC News reports that a confused English message said the hackers had turned the tables on the U.S.:
USA think they controlling and managing internet by their access, but they don't, we control and manage internet by our power.
As we reported on our Network Security Edge site, the hackers also took control of an Iranian opposition Website, mowjcamop.org. The site remains disrupted.
