Variety magazine, an established leader in entertainment reporting was apparently hacked by a company called #OurMine. Minutes ago, the magazine sent out the same kind of email blast they reserve for breaking news.
“Hacked By #OurMine – Read The post!! [IMPORTANT]” reads the headline. They then sent an article under the byline Susan Crabtree.
“Hello Variety, it’s #OurMine, don’t worry we are just testing your security, please contact us on ourmine.org -> Contact to show you how to protect your website from other hackers!”
It was listed under the Abu Dhabi Film Festival tag.
Variety has since removed the stories but have not been able to stop the email blasts. The hacker also attacked Variety’s Twitter account.
