TeamUSA.org was hacked yesterday

Now – just one month later – I received an interesting YouTube video from Twitter user @chatua_misiy which was made by the hacker group “Anonymous Poland”.  The first thing that came to mind was that I want to share that video with you guys, too.

In the video you can clearly see that the www.teamusa.org website got hacked (that and some flavor writing 😉 ). Yes, you’ve got that right, TeamUSA as in the official website from the American Sporting Federation.

If you take a closer look at the desktop shown in the video and the date that’s displayed on the bottom right corner, it seems that the hack was made just yesterday.

When you try to open the page now you will still get an error page. This tells me that the page was completely under the hackers control. It is very likely that the TeamUSA page is still being DDoSed, which would explain why it has not been reverted to it’s original state. Until now it’s still completely unclear how they have hacked the page – but rest assured that further investigations will follow.

Many thanks for this input @chatua_misiy
