Singer Amy Winehouse’s official website has been hacked by a group called Swagsec, reports digitalspy.com.
The home page has expletives flashing all over with Swagger Security - Winehouse = No Swag written across and they have also posted an image of rapper Lil B.
The hackers, according to their tweeter feed, are South-Africa-based and describe the troubled singer as a Racist crackhead devil b**** and say they plan to take back the Internet from the white devil.
At the moment, the official site is being redirected to her facebook page.
Trouble seems to follow the beehive wearing singer with her official European tour being cancelled after a disastrous alcohol-ridden performance in Belgrade.
It is interesting that Winehouse’s site was hacked the same day the site of Universal Music was broken into by a group called Antisec. Incidentally, Amy Winehouse is represented by Universal.
This is not the first time that hackers have broken into official sites of musicians. David Guetta’s new single was stolen from his personal laptop by computer hackers. IBM’s servers have been tapped into. Paul McCartney's official website had malicious code planted inside.
Van Morrison’s official website suddenly announced the birth of a son with an American record producer which he claimed was bogus and a result of hackers breaking in.
The ease with which malicious content can be planted on any website makes it obvious that celebrities should now invest in good firewalls.
