Verizon.net Hacked – Malicious hacker hacks verizon official website

Saturday, September 12th, 2009 Security
One of the offical websites of verizon. Verizon.net has been hacked by a malicious hacker. If Large corporations think they are immune i would say they are not. I got the following message. Their website was hacked and loaded with phishing information. Check the following message
Due to a number of incorrect login attempts, your Citi online account has been locked for your security. This has been done to secure your account and to protect your private information in case the login attempts were not done by you.
At Citibank, your security is our primary concern, so for your protection, we are notifying you about this suspicious activity.

If you did not trigger this lockout, please visit Citibank at

and follow the steps on the website in order to unlock your account.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

We can believe Verizon because no site site is safe absolutely. Any site can be hacked include FBI.

Verizon is suppose to be the worlds 3rd telecom industry where security is their prime motive. Its surprising how the website got hacked. Because when I was an employee there we were not even allowed to carry hign-end mobiles for security reasons.
