Hacked AP Twitter Account Reports Of Two Explosions At White House, Obama Injured

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Update 2 - Obama is fine. In other news, it may be time for @federalreserve to change their twitter passwored from QE4EVA to something more secret.

Update: yup, AP was hacked. Let's hear it for Twitter moving markets.

Did someone just hack the AP twitter account? If not, this is not good:

I hope you have a trusty mattress. I was thinking DS...Sprott probably has a massive amount of physical silver. If they can somehow crack him open like a coconut, all that physical comes pouring out into somebody's hands. Like you said this is 2008 for commodities and Sprott would be the equivelant of a major Primary Dealer, no?

Not sure fonzy but yes, if they break Sprott, his inventory will have to be liquidated. I dont know if you know that you could buy physicals directly from Sprott at sprottmoney.com. I made purchases there but it looks like their silver inventory is a bit cheaper than from other places I check (lower mark-up on the Eagles, Koalas). Maybe they need the cash, I dont know if sprottmoney and Sprott Asset Mgmt are related but I am sure Eric is getting hit from all sides right now.

smallbiz, good for you. I suggest people GTFO. I mean look at how the markets tanked and now its back to where it was...its obvious that this market has NO MORE INTEGRITY and NO MORE LIQUIDITY. I would have thought that any human who owns stocks would be dumping after that shitshow but now I know that the markets has NO HUMANS left, its all fuckin algos.

News-reading algos can detect and instadump in the absence of foreknowledge.  Not to discount that possibility, but this may just be a "shit happens when your "market" is controlled by relatively simplistic bots" situation.  Certainly a good reminder that investing or even day trading this "market" is a great way to get what's left of your fiat denominated wealth stolen from you.

I can't believe there's no cross-checking in the algos to verify something as simple (and as important) as the TIC's (Teleprompter In Chief) location against 'events' like this  ... isn't he going to be in TEXAS today viewing a fertilizer factory?

Hard? I'd say it's impossible in all but theory.

There are passwords where I'm at that are twenty years old, and can't be found (let alone changed) until we replace ALL of our enterprise software over the next three years.

Then there's all of those damn Access databases and Excel spreadsheets that pull from them. I'm trying to upgrade a system now, where the db is linked to three other dbs sitting on peoples' workstation hard drives. They thought they were cool since the main db is on the network which is backed up nightly.

Yep. It doesn't matter how strong your password is if your computer is a botnet zombie and regularly submits to its controller a list of sites you've logged into with the corresponding ID/password pairs.

Tue, 04/23/2013 - 13:53 | Link to Comment seek

Many times it isn't the password strength that's the issue, but the security of the site's software itself. History is replete with examples of being able to do stupid shit like changing a field in a URL to alter names, prices, etc.

However, your point about propaganda stands. The internet is a problem for TPTB, and a growing one as more people bypass MSM and we see more citizen reporting.

The issue won't go away with internet regulation, they need the internet locked down back into the broadcast model from the height of television. Good luck with that, but they can always pull the plug and then let a select few sites for news distribution back online, message forums disabled.

Servers are being accessed for the files containing passwords. To find software vulnerabilities is
to crack code, to make use of said exploits is hacking,
albeit in a broad sense.

But with strong hard-on passwords you can safely penetrate
the internet, including the social media dark-rooms ;-)

totally fake.  This will be the news needed to propel us up 30 today on ES.  There is nothing that can stop the market - explosions = good for GDP.  Fake explosions = massive good for market.

 

This will not even give the buyers pause - its fuel to go more.  It cannot backoff now, pinned at high waiting for the massive breakout to 1580+

Goldman and their flashy traders would never do that

the internet is truly an astounding playground for liars and the truth. It is now an open joke on itself playing fiction in milliseconds as a new and utterly brief reality in a micro but global reality that is beyond any timeless fiction.

POTUS being killed would make a perfect excuse to start a war. And a war would make a perfect excuse for QE5.

Ergo, bombs in the white house are BULLISH!!

Yes, in the days following it was like a constant drone about their social media... over and over, just about the time CISPA was being passed by the House.

Obama: "Lets not rush to judgement about the people, or groups of people, involved." 

 

Obama: "It was workplace violence."

Obama: "It was a lone wolf."

Obama: "It was a bump in the road."

SPY down 1% on massive volume for 2 minutes, up again on massive(r) volume the following 3 minutes. This market is perfectly safe, just BTFD and shut up.
