A cyber activist who claims to be linked to the hacker group Anonymous made another victim on Friday, 6. This time, the Twitter profile of Jornal O Globo was temporarily taken to broadcast messages against the broadcaster, Organizaes Globo and the mainstream media in general.
The attack was taken over by the profile @AnonManifest. The same person was linked to attacks on G1 and Revista Veja on the microblogging network, which took place during the wave of protests in June and July in Brazil.
The attacker changed the profile picture and posted aggressive messages. The attack took place in the early afternoon and took control of the account for about two hours until normal activities were restored.
