Hacking>> Riots • UK
A hacker group has attacked Blackberry’s website after the company said it would assist the police investigating riots in the UK.
On August 10, Team Poison defaced the official Blackberry blog, posting a message that threatened the firm with retaliation if it handed users’ data to the authorities. UK police believe Blackberry’s instant messaging service was used by some looters to plan their movements.
Team Poison said it did not condone innocent people or small businesses being attacked in the riots. However, it added, “we are all for the rioters that are engaging in attacks on the police and government.”
The group argued if Blackberry shared the data, “innocent members of the public who were at the wrong place at the wrong time and owned a Black - berry will get charged.”
