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.

The basic Jeep Wagoneer from which it springs has been with us for a very long time, but somehow the Wagoneer never captured much front-of-mind awareness. We watched Joe Foss driving one across the Golden West on Sunday-afternoon television, and we saw sort of gray, hard-to-classify suburban burghers hauling their fami ...

Road Trips: The Great Indian World Trip

Jul 30 2014 10:36am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

‘We are 50,000 kilometres into it now, only 20,000 to go.” Tushar Agarwal seems matter-of-fact about The Great Indian World Trip. “We’ve done Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Africa, so now we only have Central America, North America and Europe left.” Agarwal’s email is making me jealous. Considering how far he, off-roading expert Sanjay Madan and videographer Prasad Delshpande have travelled, they seem well on their way to accomplishing their obj ...
