(AP) Hackers compromise AP Twitter account
LONDON
Hackers have compromised the main Twitter account of The Associated Press, sending out an erroneous tweet about an attack at the White House.

The tweet, which said that there had been two explosions at the White House and President Barack Obama was injured, came after hackers made repeated attempts to steal the passwords of AP journalists.

The AP said Tuesday that its Twitter account had been suspended following a hack and said it was working to correct the issue.

The cyberattack is the latest in a string targeting international media organizations.

The tweet put out by hackers briefly sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average sharply lower.

NEW YORK — Hackers compromised Twitter accounts of The Associated Press on Tuesday, sending out a false tweet about an attack at the White House.

The false tweet said there had been two explosions at the White House and that President Barack Obama was injured. The attack on AP's Twitter account and the AP Mobile Twitter account was preceded by phishing attempts on AP's corporate network.

The AP confirmed that its Twitter account had been suspended following a hack and said it was working to correct the issue. The fake tweet went out shortly after 1 p.m.

The Dow Jones industrial average dropped about 150 points after the fake tweet was sent but recovered within minutes.

“Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured,” said the fake “alert” from one of America’s most trusted news sources, briefly fooling some news outlets and sending the Dow Jones plunging 145 points in the space of two minutes — or 1 per cent.

The benchmark S&P 500 index also fell nearly 1 percent in the space of three minutes as the tweet hit the markets. With the S&P valued at roughly $14.6 trillion at the moment of the false tweet, that three-minute plunge briefly wiped out $136.5 billion (£92.2 billion) of the index's value.

It's none of your business.
Good to see that you can't use your name to sh!t on the Blue Jackets anymore, though.

Hockey Schmockey is alive and well. The bj's are close but hopefully will come up short either on their own or they'll have it taken from them.

Soccer Schmocker's views on the ColumbuScrew remain unchanged as well. It's still kickball, allows ties and therefore is un-American.

Not about the NHL, which has been one of the four North American major leagues since before your parents were born.
