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.

Sette Preferiti: 7 Fascinating Cars—Including an Alfa Jeep!—from the 2014 Concorso Italiano

Aug 20 2014 10:46am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

This year, the Pebble Beach weekend‘s traditional Friday celebration of Italian cars moved both its date (to Saturday) and its location (to the Bayonet Black Horse Golf Course in Seaside). Many people, including your author, predicted disaster, mainly because large crowds usually flock on Saturday to nearby Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. But the thick crowds and dense show field proved otherwise, as a rare Monterey Peninsula summer sun shone and the coast ...

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X - Driven

Aug 20 2014 3:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

When people talk about cars that symbolize America, they usually talk about trucks or muscle cars. For my money, though, there is nothing more American than a Jeep Wrangler. Born from the Willys MB that conquered the land during World War II, the modern Wrangler still embodies the same virtues of rugged simplicity from all those decades ago.At least, that is how it looks from an exterior design point, but the newest Wranglers have ...

Trickle-Down Armor: Feds Donate MRAPs to Local Police Departments

Aug 15 2014 8:54pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

As the country focuses on the turmoil in Ferguson, Missouri, this week, here’s a look at a vehicular example of the rapidly increasing and disturbing trend of police militarization across the United States. Built by several manufacturers in a dizzying array of variations, the MRAP (mine-resistant, ambush-protected) is a wheeled legacy of America’s Iraq and Afghanistan wars. It is engineered around armored, V-shaped hulls to survive mine and improvised-explosive-device ...
