Official Jeep Twitter Account Gets Hacked

Hackers had a sense a humor

The official Twitter account for Jeep was hacked recently and defaced with various silly messages and images. The person who hacked the account changed the Jeep logo for Cadillac logo and replaced the page's background with what may be the ugliest McDonald's themed donk in existence.

The hacker or hackers posted to the account telling followers of the feed that Cadillac purchased Jeep because Jeep employees were caught taking pain pills in the bathroom. I'm sorry, but at least this hacker had a sense of humor. At some point in the feed the person who hacked the account said that Twitter users @LILINTERNET, @DFNTSC, and @GUHTI_were responsible.

It seems that Twitter responded by suspending the @GUHTI_twitter account. @LILINTERNET responded to the accusation stating that he/she wasn't involved in the hacking and blamed@GUHTI_ and wrote, "I DID HOWEVER LOL AND LOL AND LOL AND LOL AND LOL. THANK U." Internet gangsters, we haz them.

Top of the World: Trekking $100K Range Rovers Across Colorado’s Treacherous Continental Divide

Sep 18 2014 4:34pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

In 1987, Land Rover introduced Americans to the industry’s first luxury SUV, the Range Rover. Two years later, its cult status etched into upscale burbs across the U.S., the automaker invited its most loyal customers (and a handful of intrepid journalists) to drive a convoy of 1990 Range Rovers across the Continental Divide. As it runs through Colorado, the Divide—filled with soaring peaks, gullies, gulches, washes, and abandoned mining roads crumbling since the 1800s—is the north-south line t ...

Rumblings of a deal have been, well, rumbling since July, and now TRW Automotive Holdings has agreed to sell its entire business to ZF Friedrichshafen for $13.5 billion, essentially creating a super, one-stop-shop supplier for powertrain and safety equipment.
