Jan 24Lady Gaga, Who Once Dressed in Meat, Got Hacked…on Facebook
From her meat ensemble to arriving at the Grammys in an egg, Lady Gaga manages to get noticed. This time she had help in the PR department – and not the kind of help a lady wants or needs.
According to Dark Reading.com, hackers broke into Lady Gaga’s Facebook page telling 45-million of her closest Facebook friends that she was giving away iPads ala Oprah. Not just iPads — her own customized iPads.
Fans, trying to take advantage of the free offer were directed to a Blogspot page, where they were asked to fill out an online form with their personal information. So far there were no reports what was done with the information.
In addition to Lady Gaga, the phishing attack, which lasted about an hour on Lady Gaga’s Facebook page, also targeted Maroon 5 and Blink 182.
